This definitive work--now extensively revised with many all-new chapters--has introduced generations of researchers to the psychological processes that underlie social behavior. What sets the book apart is its unique focus on the basic principles that guide theory building and research. Since work in the field increasingly transcends such boundaries as biological versus cultural or cognitive versus motivational systems, the third edition has a new organizational framework. Leading scholars identify and explain the principles that govern intrapersonal, interpersonal, intragroup, and intergroup processes, in chapters that range over multiple levels of analysis. The book' s concluding section illustrates how social psychology principles come into play in specific contexts, including politics, organizational life, the legal arena, sports, and negotiation. New to This Edition *Many new authors and updated chapter topics. *Stronger emphasis on the contextual factors that influence how and why the basic principles work as they do. *Incorporates up-to-date findings and promising research programs. *Integrates key advances in such areas as evolutionary theory and neuroscience.
"I was bowled over by this book! It is an ode to ideas and their conceptual evolution into principles and theories. With 24 chapters ranging from the intrapersonal to the intergroup level, plus six chapters illustrating the principles at work, the third edition extends the prior edition substantially with new topics and the latest scholarship and applications. This masterfully edited and lucidly written intellectual feast will be appreciated by researchers as well as by graduate students and advanced psychology majors, and is a suitable text or companion to most--if not all--social psychology courses. "--Constantine Sedikides, PhD, School of Psychology, University of Southampton, United Kingdom"This volume provides a panoramic view of classic and emerging topics in social psychology. The geographic diversity of the authors brings forth an exciting range of topics as well as offering up a more accurate perspective on the psychology of social behavior. The third edition of this work will be a treasured companion as you navigate human social nature as we understand it today. "--Mahzarin R. Banaji, PhD, Richard Clarke Cabot Professor of Social Ethics, Harvard University"Bringing the social resoundingly back to social psychology, this third edition highlights intergroup processes, cultural systems, motivation, and meaning-making as social rather than individual processes. Chapters explore the deeply social nature of human evolution and the biological and neurological evidence supporting such basic processes as social bonds and empathy. I highly recommend this handbook to readers who want to attain a solid grounding in current perspectives, topics, and methodologies of social psychology. "--Daphna Oyserman, PhD, Dean' s Professor of Psychology and Co-Director, Dornsife Center for Mind and Society, University of Southern California"The outstanding third edition of this important, well-regarded handbook reflects the editors' deep and up-to-date knowledge of the field. With an international scope, the book emphasizes classic and contemporary ideas, theories, and principles, rather than the all-too-common conglomeration of disjointed empirical findings. It offers a rich and stimulating foundation for graduate courses in social psychology and is an essential reference for researchers at all levels. The volume covers an unusually broad range, from evolutionary psychology and core intrapsychic processes to interpersonal relationships, intra- and intergroup relations, and real-world applications in law, organizational behavior, sports, and politics. With its many new chapters and highly accomplished authors, this volume captures the excitement and richness of social psychology today. "--Phillip R. Shaver, PhD, Distinguished Professor of Psychology Emeritus, University of California, Davis"It is a must for empirical researchers in the field. . . . Highly recommended. Graduate students, researchers, and professionals. " (on the second edition) - Choice Reviews, 2/1/2008
