The book documents current developments in research on authoritarianism by well-known experts from all over the world. Adorno et al.'s study of the authoritarian character and Altemeyer's reconceptualization in the 1980s are legendary – but where has research developed since? Modern perspectives, theoretical approaches and empirical results are assembled in this book which systematically reflects the state of the art in international authoritarianism research.
