9780230217959: Social Psychology and Everyday Life

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, multicultural 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 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.

Review:

Social Psychology and Everyday Life is more engaging and more thought-provoking than any other Social Psychology text I have read. It is a well-researched and refreshing introduction to Social Psychology. It offers a critical account of the field while acknowledging the value of more mainstream theories and classic studies. As such, it promises to be an enormously useful resource in teaching. Students at all levels will find it interesting, challenging and relevant to their lives and careers.” —Dr Caroline Howarth, Social Psychology, London School of Economics

Social Psychology in Everyday Life does what social psychology textbooks rarely dare to do: it applies the theories of social psychology to the everyday world we actually inhabit. Starting with social problems and experiences to which students can easily relate, the text then leads us from one insight to the next to show how social psychology can transform the world around us.” —Alex Gillespie, Lecturer in Psychology, University of Stirling
