Description

Social Psychology: Traditional and Critical Perspectives addresses the key issues in social psychology - such as prejudice, aggression, conformity, persuasion, attraction, relationships and prosocial behaviour - in a bold and innovative way. As well as providing detailed coverage of classic and contemporary 'mainstream' research, this book engages with 'critical' literature - bringing to the textbook the sort of debates that can be found in social psychology conferences, journals and specialist texts. In addition, the book goes beyond simply describing research findings - it critically evaluates the research it covers, supporting your own critical engagement with the literature.
