'We will pay you $4.00 for one hour of your time. Persons needed for a study of memory.' So began, fifty years ago, what became arguably the most famous (and, for some, the most infamous) experiments in psychology's history: Milgram's obedience studies. Their shock waves spread through psychology and beyond, and this month Alex Haslam and Steve Reicher lead a special feature reconnecting with Milgram's vision for social psychology and society. We hear from Stanley Milgram's widow, Alexandra Milgram, on the man, his passions and motivations. Jerry Burger updates Milgram's enduring legacy, including some interesting partial replications. Finally, we move beyond psychology to hear from film scholar Kathryn Millard and historian Richard Overy. It is perhaps apt that Milgram, such a staple of student learning in psychology, should feature so heavily in this particular issue, which is also being received in print and electronic form by thousands of new undergraduates. Welcome, and I urge you to find much more support for your studies via www.bps.org.uk, including our own archive at www.thepsychologist.org.uk and the Research Digest blog at www.researchdigest.org.uk/blog.
