From prejudice and aggression to group co-operation and close intimate relationships, this textbook covers the field of social psychology from general principles to cutting-edge research. Written as a comprehensive and complete guide, the authors take an outward-looking and international view of the discipline while maintaining a practical and ‘hands on’ writing style. This is achieved by placing the student experience at the heart of the text with various innovative features such as ‘student projects’ and ‘try for yourself’ exercises.

This blend of approaches from the critical appraisal of current research studies, to real life examples and illustrations, will help students to develop a solid understanding of social psychology whilst building the confidence to apply this knowledge successfully in assignments and exams.
