World Policy Journal Issue on Megalomania

 

The June, 2018 World Policy Journal resleased a special issue focusing on megalomania, which they define as "an insatiable desire for power, a tenuous relationship with reality, and a persecution complex."  

"In this age of centralized power," editors assert, "one could contend that megalomaniacs determine the dominant forms of everything from the way cities are represented to daily eating habits. Contributors use the lens of megalomania and all of its repercussions to analyze contemporary global affairs. The articles explore how Nazis stimulated the organic food movement, what caused the rise of Egypt’s military celebrities, and why a contentious populist might be Brazil’s next president."  More information about the journal and a link to purchase it (for only $10!!) can be found at Duke University Press.
