    Collective action theories teach that rational people ought never to rebel. Yet, collective dissent does occur. This book is largely about solutions to the rebel's dilemma of mobilizing collective dissent: under what conditions they are adopted and when they are effective. Lichbach, a political scientist, begins by examining processes that lead. Psychology and Climate Change describes the implications of psychological processes such as perceptions and motivations (e.g., risk perception, motivated cognition, denial), emotional responses, group identities, mental health and well-being, sense of place, and behavior (mitigation and adaptation). The book strives to engage diverse.

    Topics covered include social values and rules of fairness; cognitive processes underlying cooperation; the effects of intergroup competition and cooperation on intragroup and intergroup relationships; and altruism and the problem of collective action. Comprised of 18 chapters, this book begins with an overview of theories and research on.
