Product Description

From the Back Cover

Can we ever be genuinely unprejudiced? What can we learn about people from how they speak? How can a minority change the world? Why do people obey authority, even when ordered to carry out evil acts? Why do groups sometimes make bad decisions? Can we study love scientifically, or should we leave it to the poets? Do violent computer games make violent people?

 

Mapping the connection between social psychology and our everyday lives, the sixth edition of this market-leading textbook provides a lively and accessible introduction to the field.

 

Classic features:

  • Comprehensive coverage of social psychological theory and research
  • Written from a European perspective, for students living in Britain and continental Europe
  • Includes numerous features to aid independent study, such as theory and concept boxes, research highlights and real world applications
  • Packed with intriguing theories and exciting research ranging from Abrams and Allport to Yzerbyt and Zimbardo

New to this edition:

  • Thoroughly updated throughout to capture new developments in the field
  • Significant revision of coverage of leadership, social identity, minority influence, norms, the nature of groups, and some aspects of social cognition
  • New sections on dehumanisation, hate crimes, and acculturation and immigration
  • Referencing and Further Reading have been updated, and the Literature, Film & TV section has been revised to include topical examples of social psychology in the popular media

Format: Paperback
I'm a mature psychology student and researched all sorts of social psychology books online for my degree course. This book looked interesting enough and the table of contents swayed me to buy the book.
When I received it I was impressed by the lay out and 4-colour of the book. It covers all the basics of social psychology.
HOWEVER,
the style the book is written in is too complex and advanced for a person new to the field. My vocabulary is by no means bad but I found this book to be a tad too articulate. Explanations of theories can be written in a more simple and contructive way than this book.
My advise is to look at other major texts in the field. Rather pick this one up as reference text later down the line when your social psychology knowledge is more advanced...

This is probably a bit heavy for someone who has never studied psychology before, but as my degree covers a lot of the topics my A Level covered I am finding it invaluable. It is full of references to studies so it is great as a stepping stone to further research for coursework etc. Also, it is the only book that is also on the reading list for my second year.

Format: Paperback
I am a second year Psychology student, who had not studied psychology previous to university. I was looking for a general textbook to cover my social psychology modules.
The layout of this book is pretty good and it covers a large range of topics. Unfortunately I found this book almost impossible to read, it's far to complicated for someone just starting out. As a reference aid I imagine it would be very useful, but if it's intended to introduce topics and provide a basis for understanding, then I would look elsewhere.
Frustrating to read- Almost impossible without already possesing a good level of knowledge- especially concerning psychological and scientific terms

Format: Paperback
As far as text books go this must be one of the dullest I have ever had to use. They say never judge a book by its cover, but in this case I think the cover says it all. The empty chairs are a clear indication that anyone who has had to endure the pretentious babble of Hogg and Vaughan will be up and running out of the room to escape their overly complex explanations of relatively simple theories.

I would urge anyone who is looking for a text book on social psychology to look elsewhere. This book is totally amateurish, with its numerous typos and even chunks of texts that are missing!!! It makes you wonder if even the editor and publishers were so bored by the book that they gave up doing their job properly.

At a recommended retail price of £32.99 it is daylight robbery!
