about

This book summarizes 20 years of experimental investigations into the phenomenon of "blaming the victim" for misfortune. It presents theory and research generated by the hypothesis that people must maintain the belief that they live in a just world. This belief is shown to be a fundamental delusion which enables people to function despite life's tragedies.
