Advances in Political Psychology is the second publication of the International Society of Political Psychology. Given the continued growth and explosion of information and interest in political psychology, the society sensed there was an increasing need for a place where cumulative research findings and theoretical developments are synthesized and integrated in a form accessible to scholars, students, and practitioners. The Advances in Political Psychology annual series is intended to fill this need by recording the state of the field and highlighting innovative developments so that those who are interested can keep abreast of what is happening in political psychology. Each annual volume includes a selection articles that capture the diversity of subject matter studied by political psychologists. The editor-in-chief is Howard Lavine of the University of Minnesota.
