This thought-provoking anthology offers a close examination of the psychology behind the intricate narrative and compelling characters in the popular HBO TV series Game of Thrones, based upon author George R.R. Martin's bestselling work, A Song of Ice and Fire.
In Martin’s richly detailed world, deceit, manipulation, and greed rule the day, and almost everyone is fighting to gain ultimate power over the realm. With no moral boundaries honored, the psychological games played by the series’ conniving protagonists are seemingly limitless. War, murder, violence, and rape are only a few of the weighty issues these 19 analytical essays explore—along with personality disorders, post-traumatic stress, and psychopathy. Covering both the books and the show, Game of Thrones Psychology will become a fan favorite.
