Covering the entire scope of mainstream social psychology, this collection contains benchmark readings with a particular emphasis on recent key publications to complement older classic works. The readings are mainly empirical articles that not only cover the significant ideas and key debates in the field, but also show how social psychological knowledge is obtained through research. In addition to the 80 key original articles included in the collection, the set opens with an introductory editorial essay by Michael A Hogg setting out the rationale behind the selections, and providing an illuminating discussion of the development of social psychology and its theoretical foundations. Volume 1 covers topics in social cognition and social perception - including impression formation, attribution, schemas, categories and categorization, stereotyping, the self and self-related phenomena and attitudes. Volume 2 covers social interaction - including social comparison, attraction and rejection, prosocial behaviour and social dilemmas, compliance, power, persuasion, obedience, aggression, communication and negotiation. Volume 3 covers people in groups - including group and individual performance and decision making, conformity and minority influence, roles, socialization, leadership and group remembering. Volume 4 covers intergroup behaviour and societal context - including relative deprivation, group conflict, discrimination, disadvantage, prejudice, social identity, crowd behaviour, social protest, intergroup contact and culture. This 4-volume reference set will make an invaluable addition to any academic library with an interest in and/or existing collection in social psychology. Given its diverse yet coherent organization, it ought to provide an excellent supplement on courses in social psychology where students need to engage with the provocative ideas which have made this field both lively and fascinating.
