This ground-breaking and innovative textbook offers a uniquely global approach to the study of social psychology. Inclusive and outward-looking, the authors consciously re-orientate the discipline of social psychology, promoting a collectivist approach. Each chapter begins with an illustrative scenario based on everyday events, from visiting a local health centre to shopping in a supermarket, which challenges readers to confront the issues that arise in today’s diverse, multicultural society.  This textbook also gives a voice to many indigenous psychologies that have been excluded from the mainstream discipline and provides crucial coverage of the colonization experience.

By integrating core social psychology theories and concepts with critical perspectives, Social Psychology and Everyday Life provides a thought-provoking introduction suitable for both undergraduate and postgraduate students of social psychology and community psychology.  It can also be used by students in related subjects such as sociology, criminology and other social sciences.

"Social Psychology and Everyday Life will serve as a valuable resource for social psychology lecturers and undergraduate students. It will have a special appeal for those who wish to foster critical perspectives, and to promote a variety of epistemological and ontological viewpoints among their students...I could envisage a place for the book as a core introductory text. I look forward to seeing where the approaches outlined by Hodgetts and his colleagues can take our discipline, and which buses my generation of social psychologists will get on." Timothy Gomersall, PhD student, University of Leeds, Social Psychological Review
"Social Psychology and Everyday Life is more engaging and more thought-provoking than any other Social Psychology text I have read. It is a well-researched and refreshing introduction to Social Psychology, its application and its importance for understanding social, cultural and political change. It offers a critical account of the field while acknowledging the value of more mainstream theories and classic studies. As such, it promises to be an enormously useful resource in teaching. Students at all levels will find it interesting, challenging and relevant to their lives and careers."
Dr Caroline Howarth, Social Psychology, London School of Economics
"I typically respond with great suspicion to textbooks that are a bit 'outside the square'. But this textbook is different: It embraces mainstream meta-theories in social psychology and puts them up-side-down in a way that respects the intelligence and sensitivities of the average reader. It does it in a way that is likely to appeal and be acceptable to a large audience." - Dr Stefania Paolini, Social Psychology lecturer, University of Newcastle, Australia
"Social Psychology in Everyday Life does what social psychology textbooks rarely dare to do: it applies the theories of social psychology to the everyday world we actually inhabit. Starting with social problems and experiences to which students can easily relate, the text then leads us from one insight to the next to show how social psychology can transform the world around us."
Alex Gillespie, Lecturer in Psychology, University of Stirling
