Texte du rabat

Anger and resentment appear to be playing an increasingly important rolein politics, as evidenced by the vociferous opposition to welfare, abortion, andimmigrants, and by the rise of the radical Religious Right. The Politics of Denialpresents a compelling explanation of these phenomena, providing solid empiricalevidence for the role of rigid, harsh childrearing practices in the creation ofpunitive, authoritarian adult political attitudes. The authors show how politicalprocesses in the United States are distorted by the unresolved negative emotions(such as fear, anger, and helplessness) that remain from punitive parenting, and bythe politicians and conservative religious leaders who exploit those emotions. Amongthe many public figures discussed are Patrick Buchanan, Newt Gingrich, RonaldReagan, and Billy Graham.



Résumé
Anger and resentment play an increasingly important role in politics. This text claims that rigid and harsh childrearing practices have played a role in the creation of punitive, authoritarian adult political attitudes and explores how this has distorted political processes in the US.
