A book that details one of the major social experiments of the last century, "Obedience to Authority" documents the reasons of why human beings can adopt (or adapt) certain behaviours that are unthinkable when acting on their own way but executed without hesitation when following orders. Milligram basically concludes that “the essence of obedience consists on the fact that a person comes to view himself as the instrument for carrying out another's person wishes, and he therefore no longer regards himself as responsible for his actions.”

An essential book to understand many of the atrocities and calamities of the human being and why our species, as animals, can act as such when our mind and internal models are hijacked by an authority or an ideology.
