Gustav Le Bon's The Crowd is not only a classic, but one of the best-selling scientific books in social psychology and collective behavior ever written. Here, Le Bon analyzes the nature of crowds and their role in political movements. He presents crowd behavior as a problem of science and power, a natural phenomenon with practical implications. [Canetti's] work consists—apart from a small number of plays—of two very large books: the novel Auto da Fé (first published in as Die Blendung), and the treatise Crowds and Power.

Gustave Le Bon, The Crowd, 5 invariably demonstrated to me that social organisms being every whit as complicated as those of all beings, it is in no wise in our power to force them.
