Review quote

"Social Identity and Social Cognition demonstrates compellingly how cross--communication between different theoretical perspectives can inform and enrich social psychological theory. Each of the contributing authors to this volume has taken seriously their task of integrating insights from the social identity and social cognition traditions, with the result that each chapter contributes something new to both literatures." Professor Marilynn B. Brewer, Ohio State University

Back cover copy

"Social Identitiy and Social Cognition" brings together key researchers in social identity and social cognition to address the interface between the two traditionally opposing approaches. This book represents a milestone in the progress of social psychological research as the editors and contributors examine what each of the processes have to offer not only to each other, but to the future of social psychology as a whole. Building on the strengths of both approaches, the book captures exciting new developments and articulates an emerging framework for the social psychology of intergroup and group processes. "Social Identity and Social Cognition" provides an invaluable sourcebook for researchers and upper-level students alike.
