Mistrust

First Edition


October 2021 | 284 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
The word 'mistrust' has been used more frequently in 2020 than at any other time since 1850.  This book considers the reasons why and
- explores some social psychological processes that explain how mistrust develops
- considers the effects that it has upon those who are mistrustful and those who are mistrusted
- as well as offering a model of mistrust processes.

With examples ranging from the the 1872 US presidential election to the Trump era, it also considers Brexit, and has a significant focus on the Covid-19 pandemic. By looking at the role of social media, and how mistrust can be weaponised this book interrogates its place in our society.

Ultimately, whilst feeling mistrust is part of being human this book warns that we ignore mistrust at our peril.

Ideal for students of social psychology, this book will add depth to teaching and research on trust, distrust and mistrust.
