Have you or someone you have known ever radically changed a core belief system? How and why does deep psychological change occur?

I am looking for anecdotes of personal change, studies in psychological and sociological scientific literature and books or news articles featuring people who have made fundamental changes in the way they think about people and the world we live in.
Pro-Choice to Pro-Life
Liberal to Conservative
Neo-Nazi to.. non-racist
Coke to Pepsi
Strict Disciplinarian to laissez-faire parenting
Anti-Death Penalty to Pro-Death Penalty
Especially interested in the how. What lead up to the change and what tipping-point if any caused it to occur.
