As compared to the past, today political behavior is less influenced by religion, social class, or geographical area. This opens up to the neccessity to find new explanations. The results of a large-scale survey based on face-to-face interviews are presneted in the volume. For the first time, political scientists, sociologists, and social psychologist have worked together to understand the psychological bases of the left-right ideological continuum. Are left-wing voters really different from right-wing voters? Is such difference rooted in a pre-political psychological dimension? what are the relations with emotions, identifications, prejudice, attitudes towards leaders, self efficacy? An in-depth analysis of the Italian political mind.
