"This volume is everthing one would want from a one-volume handbook of social psychology or, indeed, of any scientific discipline. Comprehensive in scope, authoritative, clearly written, and detailed, it covers not only the usual topics one would expect in such a survey--history, methodology, social cognition, emotions, interpersonal relations and relationships, and group processes, both positive and negative--but also those especially relevant to social psychology as it enters its second century. The volume is edited by two of the most prominent social psychologists in their own right, and the list of contributors is a veritable who's who of the discipline but also includes a number of younger and non-US-based scholars. Essential. No library should be without this book." --CHOICE

This is a comprehensive, scholarly, up-to-date survey of the field of social psychology for the new millennium - a single volume Handbook containing 23 chapters by leading researchers from around the world. It is a state of the art text with an eye to the future, in which rich integrative chapters are thorough analytic reviews. The chapters fall into 5 sections that reflect the scope of social psychology as a global scientific endeavour - history and nature of social psychology, individual processes, interpersonal processes, processes within groups, and intergroup processes and society. The book is edited by Michael Hogg and Joel Cooper, with Dominic Abrams, Elliot Aronson, and Shelley Taylor acting as advisory editors. The main featu

I am not sure if this is the correct book. It appears as a photo copy and the pages are difficult to read and follow.

Joel Cooper received his B.A. from the City College of New York in 1965 and a Ph.D. from Duke University in 1969. He joined the psychology department faculty at Princeton University in 1969, attaining the rank of full professor in 1978. Professor Cooper's major research focus is on attitudes and attitude change, particularly as they relate to the process of cognitive dissonance. His recent work examines vicarious experiences of dissonance (i.e., feeling dissonance due to the inconsistent behavior of others) and the role of the self in dissonance arousal. Two other areas of active interest are (1) the effect of expert testimony in courts of law, and (2) gender differences in the effectiveness of information technology, particularly among school children.
