European Review of Social Psychology Volume 3 Edited by Wolfgang Stroebe, University of Tubingen, West Germany and Miles Hewstone, University of Bristol, UK The European Review of Social Psychology is an annual series that reflects the dynamism of social psychology in Europe and the attention now paid to European ideas and research. Although open to authors from all nations, one of its major purposes is to further the international exchange of ideas by providing an outlet for substantial accounts of theoretical and empirical work that has not been previously published in English. With the help of an editorial board consisting of senior scholars from various European countries and the USA, the editors will invite outstanding researchers to contribute to these volumes. The emphasis of these contributions will be on critical assessment of major areas of research and of substantial individual programmes of research as well as on topics and initiatives of contemporary interest and originality. The authors of this third volume are drawn from Europe, the United States and Australia.
They represent the international scope and quality which the editors intend should become the hallmarks of this series.
