War & Social Psychology

Well, I have settled down and read/annotated the material around the Levi book, plus notes from the PP that I missed. I have ordered books on the social psychology of war; one is particularly disturbing, the aptly-named Cadaverland. They are several key behaviours in such situations and it is quite horrifying how preconceived ideas of supposed civilisation are quickly unmasked and how humans descend to the inhumane level.

This is going to be a fun assignment - the brutalities of war :-/
