John Nolte – Three Psychodrama Books

The Philosophy, Theory and Methods of J. L. Moreno

Throughout his life Moreno championed the cause of the weak and powerless against arbitrary authority. He saw sociometry as a means of ameliorating
dissension and redistributing power within a group so that all its members
shared sociometric wealth.

I have it on my list to review!
