Product Overview

Offering a fresh, innovative approach, this international textbook encourages students to consider how social psychology can inform their understanding of the social world around them. Illustrative scenarios based on realistic everyday events, from shopping in a supermarket to taking a taxi, highlight just how relevant this subject is to tackling the issues that can arise in a diverse, multi-cultural society. By integrating core social psychology theories and concepts with more critical perspectives," Social Psychology and Everyday Life" provides a valuable, broad, coherent and stimulating introduction to the field that is suitable for all students interested in social psychology. The book also situates social psychology within the broader social sciences, and in particular scholarship on media, place, health, justice, indigeneity, immigration, and social change.
