A basic introduction to the field, Social Psychology, Eighth Edition takes a critical, symbolic, interactionist approach and helps students understand the very nature of how individuals do things together in today??'s society. The book has been significantly revised and takes into consideration a number of the recent turns in the field: the increased sense that American social psychology is deeply embedded in a world culture; that postmodernism has much to offer the study of the social world; and that new theories on sexuality, identity, deviance, and the body provide a fascinating viewpoint on the person within society. Now in paperback to be more affordable to students, Social Psychology, 8th Edition provides a distinctive alternative for the professor of social psychology.
