Social groups have great influence on our thoughts, decisions and behavior from our infancy until our deaths. Family groups, work groups, ethnic groups and our friendship networks all shape our perceptions, thoughts and actions, as well as our feelings about ourselves. In this thorough introduction to the social psychological study of group processes, the authors have considerably updated their highly successful first edition.

The new edition develops the existing coverage of topics such as social influence, extreme behavior in groups, group productivity, social dilemmas, group decision-making and inter-group conflict. It also provides additional chapters examining research and theory regarding social support, and electronic groups. This authoritative text will familiarize the reader with current theory and the latest findings, exploring the significance and application of group research for our everyday lives.
