This collection of readings gives students exposure to a wide variety of perspectives in the field of social psychology. Each of the fifteen chapters begins with an introduction and is followed by three articles: one general (“popular”), one classic, and one contemporary. The articles are followed by critical questions designed to facilitate comprehension and encourage discussion. Topic integration questions conclude each chapter. The use of both popular readings and research articles provides students with a broad range of views and theories within the discipline of social psychology.
Popular, classic, and recent selections offer insight into social psychology. Topical organization directly parallels Baron and Byrne's , however, the collection can be used with any other social psychology text as well. Each chapter begins with an introduction and is followed by three articles. Articles are prefaced with a short introduction and are followed by critical thinking questions. This edition features updated recent and new articles from professional journals that are more readable. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
