Overview

Distinguished by its current-events emphasis, the aim to bring the outside world into the field of social psychology, strong diversity coverage, and engaging connections drawn between social psychology and students' everyday lives, SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY remains one of the most scholarly and well-written texts in its field. The tenth edition integrates classic and contemporary research, and includes comprehensive coverage of social cognition and evolutionary psychology as well as authoritative material on social psychology and the law. Culture and diversity discussions are integrated into every chapter by Hazel Rose Markus, a leader and respected researcher in the study of cultural psychology. Also available: the MindTap® digital learning experience.

  • "Putting Common Sense to the Test" challenges students' commonly held notions by asking them to predict answers to deceptively simple true/false questions that open each chapter. The related text discussion for each question is annotated in the margin, and full answers are provided at the end of the chapter.
  • A current events emphasis incorporates real-world examples and timely events, underscoring social psychology's widespread relevance and helping students see their world through a social psychologist's eyes.
  • Marginal quotes provide thought-provoking facts, findings, poll results, quotes, and more to pique students' interest and stimulate their critical thinking.
