`This volume is everything one would want from a one-volume handbook... Comprehensive in scope, authoritative, clearly written, and detailed... 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. No Library should be without this book' - Choice

This is a comprehensive, scholarly, and up-to-date survey of the field of social psychology for the new millennium - a single 656 page 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 five 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 A Hogg and Joel Cooper, with Dominic Abrams, Elliot Aronson and Shelley Taylor acting as advisory editors.

The main features and benefits of this book include: single volume; international coverage of social psychology; international line-up of authors; basic and applied research are integrated within chapters, not exiled to the end of the book; traditional emphasis on individual and interpersonal processes is balanced with full emphasis on the study of group processes and intergroup relations; chapters on language and social psychology, culture and self.

"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."
