The study of crowds must consider how they relate to practical reason and pure reason, and whether they take fictitious shapes or real shapes, and if they display theoretical values or practical values. Behind these, it is important also to assist whether they are guided by visible facts or invisible causes. Crowds are eerie in that they rise out of ancient mysterious forces such as destiny, nature and providence, as if the soul of the crowd comes from voices of the dead. Adding to the intrigue, Le Bon insists, the ideas that feed the frenzy of the crowd emanate from solitary minds. He asks the rhetorical question, "Is it not the genius of the crowds that has furnished the thousands of grains of dust forming the soil in which they have sprung up?"

When renowned French sociologist GUSTAVE LE BON (1841-1931), who pioneered the field of mass psychology, took a fresh, scientific look at the subject of revolution-and in particular, the French Revolution-he stripped away legend and illusion to find the core reality. In this profound and insightful work, a replica of the 1913 edition, he explores the mob mentality of revolutionaries-religious, scientific, and political-examines the motives of their leaders, and discusses how new forms of democratic belief and practice arise from popular movements. Students of history and the human mind alike will find it a fascinating read. ALSO FROM COSIMO: Le Bon's The Crowd: A Study of the Popular Mind

The Psychology of Socialism was first published in 1899 in a period of crisis for French democracy. The Third Republic had survived an attempted coup detat, only to be confronted with what Georges Sorel and others called the "Bohemian revolution"-the triumph of radical and socialist forces in the Dreyfus Affair. The emotionalism and hysteria of the period convinced Le Bon that most political controversy is based neither on reasoned deliberation nor rational interest, but on a psychology that partakes of hysterical religiosity.
