Detail from book cover.

How does social change happen and when do social movements take off? Do social norms influence change? Why does change occur in some contexts but not in others?

Drawing on new research in behavioral science, economics, psychology, and other fields, Professor Sunstein helps us understand how social norms impact political, cultural, economic, and corporate climates to create new and different decisions. How do movements like #MeToo or white nationalism rise to prominence? Are apps that count calories useful "nudges" to change peoples' health?

Cass R. Sunstein is the Robert Walmsley University Professor at Harvard Law School. From 2009 to 2012, he was administrator of the White House Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs.
