Invitation to Social Psychology
This introduction to social pscyhology melds coverage of current research with a conciseness that is unusual for its depth. Realistic examples of application are integrated within the text, making Social Psychology particularly practical for the student. Features: * Twelve-chapter format is manageable for the typical semester or quarter course. * Well-integrated applications provide a useful context in every chapter. * Emphasis on cross-cultural research is marked by discussions addressing CULTURAL AWARENESS, CULTURE AND THE SELF, CULTURAL UNIVERSALS and ATTITUDES, BEHAVIOR AND CULTURE. * THOUGHT QUESTIONS throughout the chapters stimulate critical thinking, integration and application of knowledge, and POINTS TO PONDER revisit further stimulate thinking. * Currency of research is evidenced by the inclusion of more than 600 references from 1990 or later. * Chapter outlines give students a preview of content and provide a framework for learning, and chapter summaries provide a point-by-point review of information within chapters. * New terms are defined both in a running glossary and at the end of the book.
