Social Psychology: Revisiting the Classic Studies is brought together by some of the world s leading voices in this rich and historically significant sub-field of psychology. Since the end of the second world war, numerous studies have entered the canon of what we now understand to be classical , from Milgram s shocking obedience study, to Latané and Darley s bystander intervention studies to Zimbardo s now famous, controversial Stanford Prison experiment. This title provides a telescopic lens back to the past when investigations first began, then to the present day when new light is shining on these key pieces of research, to present a contemporary assessment of all aspects of social behavior.
