A true American individualist ergo a true American original. One of our great homegrown thinkers.

Go to The Hoffer Project to get acquainted with his life & work.

Go directly to an anthology and quick summary of many of his works (attached to The Hoffer Project). Does not include his most famous work “The True Believer.”

Go to for a decent review & further links regarding Hoffer’s celebrated “The True Believer-Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements” (1951).
