The Journal of Psychohistory, a peer reviewed journal, now edited by David Lotto, presents a psychological view of world events–past and present. 
With this exciting quarterly journal, you’ll be able to understand the intimate connections between people’s emotional life and their social and political behavior. Termed by Alice Miller as “the first journal that doesn’t gloss over the facts of childhood,” the journal has for over 40 years been giving readers insights into the hidden causes of social behavior that other periodicals overlook. Called “scholarly and documented yet readable for the interested lay person” by Library Journal and “the richest decoding of the impulses of our age” by The Nation, the journal contains in-depth articles about topics such as:
  • Election 2016, Authoritarian Childrearing, Our suicidal Trajectory
  • Voting Against Ones Own Self-Interests: Psychological Perspectives
  • The History of Child Abuse
  • The Tea Party and the Recent Rise of Right-Wing Racism
  • The Origins of War and Social Violence in Early Traumas
  • Attachment Theory and Psychohistory
  • Apartheid: Why It Happened
  • Slavery: Holocaust and Intergenerational Traumas
  • U.S Masculinity Crisis: Militarism and War
