Not long ago, social psychology was a small field consisting of creative, energetic researchers bent on trying to study a few vexing problems in normal adult human behavior with rigorous scientific methods. The Encyclopedia of Social Psychology is designed as a road map to this rapidly growing and important field and provides individuals with a simple, clear, jargon free introduction. These two volumes include more than 600 entries chosen by a diverse team of experts to comprise an exhaustive list of the most important concepts. Entries provide brief, clear, and readable explanations to the vast number of ideas and concepts that make up the intellectual and scientific content in the area of social psychology.
"Boasting an extensive list of contributors and an impressive amount of detail throughout, this is an excellent tool for undergraduates, practitioners, graduates, and researchers. Essential for academic libraries. [Available electronically through Sage eReference as well as through the Gale Virtual Reference Library.]"
