Abstract
This document presents the Introduction to a special issue of the journal Analyses of Social Issues and Public Policy entitled “Psychological Perspectives on Threats to Democracy.” The issue was guest edited by Dr. David R. Mandel (Defence Research and Development Canada) and Dr. Mandeep K. Dhami (University of Cambridge). The aim of the special issue was to bring together a collection of articles that examined the idea of “threats to democracy” from various psychological perspectives, and from before and after the 9/11 terrorist attacks. The issue is comprised of five articles that spotlight a diversity of substantive issues and that address those issues with a plurality of theoretical perspectives and methods. This document briefly sketches the nature of each of these five contributions.
