Book review of 'The Psychology of Fake News. Accepting, Sharing, and Correcting Misinformation'
edited by Rainer Greifeneder, Mariela E. Jaffé, Eryn J. Newman & Norbert Schwarz, Routledge, 2021, 253 pages
At a time when the line between facts and fake news has become increasingly difficult to identify, there is a need for a proper conceptualization of both the phenomenon and its implications so that policy makers can articulate effective strategies to reduce the effects of misinformation. In this unstable and turbulent context, the collective volume The Psychology of Fake News. Accepting, Sharing, and Correcting Misinformation, coordinated by Rainer Greifeneder, Mariela E. Jaffé, Eryn J. Newman and Norbert Schwarz, and published last year by the prestigious Routledge Taylor & Francis Group publisher, makes a valuable contribution to a better understanding of this social phenomenon and its functional mechanisms.
