Why do groups of talented and experienced individuals make disastrously bad collective judgments, such as the Kennedy administration's flawed decision to proceed with the Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961? In his pioneering research on collective decision making, Irving Janis introduced the concept of "groupthink"―a deliberately Orwellian neologism―to describe such occurrences. Now, in the first book-length study of groupthink since Janis's work, Paul 't Hart has provided a rigorous and systematic version of this influential theory which opens several new avenues for research.
"Paul 't Hart is one of the few scholars who have been able to build effectively on Janis's insights and his first-rate book places the concept of groupthink on a rigorous, intellectually systematic footing."(Fred I. Greenstein, Princeton University)
"This unique book pushes ahead the work of Irving Janus, opening up the black box of group processes and providing a key to comprehending and improving this critical component of governance."(Yehezkel Dror, Hebrew University and the European Institute of Public Administration)
