Review

'I will never use another textbook for my social psychology courses!’ Dr Martin Hagger, University of Nottingham

 ‘Hogg & Vaughan is the most comprehensive social psychology text on the market and covers material in a more sophisticated manner than the competition. Moreover, the chapters on culture, self/identity, and language provide information that is often lacking.’ Dr Mark Burgess, Oxford Brookes University

‘I use the fourth edition of Hogg & Vaughan for my first-year class and can say that it makes teaching social psychology interesting and fun! The writing style is clear and engaging and conveys the passion of the authors even with difficult and potentially “dry” material.’ Dr Anja Eller, University of St Andrews

--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

Back-cover:

I will never use another textbook for my social psychology courses!’ Dr Martin Hagger, University of Nottingham

 A man enters a café, greets with a kiss on each cheek a young woman waiting for him at a table, and sits opposite her. He orders them both an espresso and subsequently dominates the conversation about a recently released film. How would a social psychologist go about explaining this rather ordinary event?

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

 Classic features:

·        Addresses key issues in social psychology from a European perspective

·        Includes a range of features to aid independent study such as theory and concept boxes, research highlights and real world applications

·        Packed with exciting research studies ranging from Allport to Zimbardo.

 

New to this edition:

·        Chapters on attitudes, aggression, leadership and decision making, prosocial behaviour, and attraction and close relationships have been significantly rewritten to include the latest thinking and developments

·        Literature, Film & TV sections have been updated to include the most recent examples of social psychology in the popular media

·        Increased coverage of topical areas including terror management theory and social neuroscience

Also available - new, user-freindly website featuring an interative recap and reminder of the main text, self test materials, and podcasts from different researchers for students to consolidate and test their understanding. For access visit www.pearsoned.co.uk/hogg.     

Michael Hogg is Professor of Social Psychology at Claremont Graduate University.

Graham Vaughan is Professor of Psychology at the University of Auckland.
