Overview

The second volume in this innovative two-volume set, Handbook of Theories of Social Psychology, provides a comprehensive exploration of the major developments of social psychological theories that have taken place over the past half century, culminating in a state of the art overview of the primary theories and models that have been developed in this vast and fascinating field.

Volume Two covers Interpersonal Level of Analysis, Group and Cultural Level of Analysis. Authored by leading international experts, each chapter represents a personal and historical narrative of the theory's development including the inspirations, critical junctures, and problem-solving efforts that effected theoretical choices and determined the theory's impact and its evolution. Unique to this handbook, these narratives provide a rich background for understanding how theories are created, nurtured, and shaped over time, and examining their unique contribution to the field as a whole. To examine its societal impact, each theory is evaluated in terms of its applicability to better understanding and solving critical social issues and problems.

The Handbook of Theories of Social Psychology, Volume Two is an essential resource for researchers and students of social psychology and related disciplines.
