this book is a book that helped me with my research paper that talked about Stanley Milgram and his experiment. it talked about how his experiment consisted of a "teacher" and a "learner" where the actual experiment was the "teacher". this book showed me how people would react while under an authority figure and what they will do while under this authority figure. the shocking thing about it is that the people, still knowing they will conflict pain on the other person still went on to continue the experiment. this book shows that he was influenced by the holocaust and that it was the reason to him starting this experiment.
