"It began as a game in the name of science, an investigation of aggressive behaviour in a simulated prison environment. Twenty men. Two weeks. The payoff: a breezy $2,000. The plan: assign eight men as 'guards' and twelve men as 'prisoners'. While the prisoners are locked up and ordered to follow rules, the guards are instructed to keep order. But giving a man power makes him powerful. Take away a man's pride and humanity and it makes him weak. As the experiment plays out, power and authority battle rebellion and retribution and increasing violent results blur the line between experiment and reality."--Container.
