Synopsis (from the Publisher):

The characters of The Walking Dead live in a desolate post-apocalyptic world, filled with relentless violence and death. In reality, how would such never-ending trauma affect the psyche? By understanding the psychological forces that drive the series’ action, fans can better grasp this compelling fictional universe. Which characters suffer PTSD and is there hope for them? Is the Governor a psychopath, a sociopath, or something even worse? What does Terror Management Theory tell us about what it means to fight constantly or survival? What is the emotional cost of killing a walker or even another living person? What is groupthink and how does it affect the decisions made by the people of Woodbury, Terminus, Alexandria, and Rick’s “family”? In 19 chapters from a range of esteemed contributors, plus “Case Files” sidebars by editor Travis Langley with a foreword by Night of the Living Dead co-creator John Russo, The Walking Dead Psychology: Psych of the Living Dead answers these and many other questions in a way sure to fascinate the millions of passionate readers and viewers.
