Review quote

'The Sage Handbook of Social Psychology is clearly written and well laid out...Each chapter contains enough infomation to keep the most avid student interested. it is probably best suited for advanced undergraduate modules but that is not to say that a keen first-year student could not benefit from having a look at it. A postgraduate student just starting their research or Masters degreemay also find this book useful in that it may help for some interesting ideas.' - Catherine Jansson-Boyd Psychology: Learning and Teachingshow more

Michael Hogg' home page: Joel Cooper received his B.A. from the City College of New York in 1965 and a Ph.D. from Duke University in 1969. He joined the psychology department faculty at Princeton University in 1969, attaining the rank of full professor in 1978. Professor Cooper's major research focus is on attitudes and attitude change, particularly as they relate to the process of cognitive dissonance. His recent work examines vicarious experiences of dissonance (i.e., feeling dissonance due to the inconsistent behavior of others) and the role of the self in dissonance arousal. Two other areas of active interest are (1) the effect of expert testimony in courts of law, and (2) gender differences in the effectiveness of information technology, particularly among school more
