Evil & Social Psychology
#1
This article includes the infamous Milgram study and the infamous Standford prison study. It speaks about how environments, rather than internal dispositions, can cause people to do evil things and also, conversely (at the end) suggests how environments can encourage pro-social behaviors.

I was reading this last night for hours and it fascinated me.
