I am a little disappointed after reading Charles Mackay’s book Extraordinary Popular Delusions and The Madness of Crowds for the title promised to me at least so much I was sure to find an extensive psychological study on the subject of crowds’ psychology but what I found is only a true pretty impressive collection of many follies crowds had been prey of over time accompanied by some candid comments from a bewildered author usually in the spirit of the followingWhen the world begins to believe extraordinary things of an individual there is no telling where its extravagance will stop People when once they have taken the start vie with each other who shall believe mostThe three volumes try to organize popular delusions in three categories national peculiar and philosophical but the criteria are rather lax The first one begins with a detailed description of the Mississippi scheme in France copied in England by what was called “the South Sea bubble” and ends with a description of a peculiar kind of murderers in India the thugs In between some amusing stories about the tulipomania that haunted the 17th century Europe the laws concerning long hair culminating with a beard tax in Russia the power of the prophecies and relics over both rich and poor educated and ignorant and other things that reveal the constant “love of the marvellous and disbelief of the truth”Half of the second book is dedicated to the crusades and the rest looks over the witch hunt trials of the inuisition presents some famous slow poisoners and enumerates some haunted housesThe last one consists mainly of short biographies of famous alchemists like Avicenna Paracelsius Roger Bacon or Cornelius Agrippa and fortune tellers and magnetisers like Anthony Mesmer Cagliostro or NostradamusIn conclusion the book is a delightful collection of strange stories for the amateurs of the genre but it is also a rich source of information for anyone who would want to write a scientific study psychological social historical take your pick about the crowd behaviour Free read ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free î Charles Mackay
