Professor Fred I. Greenstein has received the Lasswell Award from the International Society of Political Psychology for his contributions to the field over many years.
The society cited Greenstein for having built "new roads rather than following the beaten paths," beginning with his doctoral dissertation in the late 1950s and continuing through publication of his new book, The Presidential Difference, this year.
The award honors Greenstein for his work in several areas of political psychology: the political socialization of children, personality and politics, and presidential leadership style.
"His work is not only marked by theoretical sophistication, creativity, and careful attention to evidence, but is also characterized by a sharp clarity of articulation that makes it accessible to both the scholarly and policy communities, thus contributing to a gap-bridging dialogue between the two communities," the citation states.
