This volume brings together critical analysis of the phenomenon called interpersonal expectations—a sub-area of social psychology that studies how the expectations of one person affects the behavior of another in an interactive setting. It is divided into three major sections: (1) real-world applications of research on interpersonal expectations, such as in the courtroom, classroom and operating room; (2) the mediation of interpersonal expectations through verbal and nonverbal behavior; and (3) the emerging methodological and statistical techniques for understanding the implications of interpersonal expectations. Critical commentary and analysis by leading scholars in the field are presented.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"An excellent resource for those interested in the phenomenon of interpersonal expectations....Ideas explored include an interest in the accuracy of perceptions of nonverbal behaviors, gender differences in nonverbal behaviors and expectations in the physician-patient relationship." C.L. Kleinke, Choice

"In this volume, dedicated to Rosenthal, readers will enjoy some rare and wonderful historical perspectives of this line of research as well as examine a representative cross-section of the current work in the area. The collection of well-organized and well-edited chapters is a necessary addition to the library of the serious social interaction scholar and should also be enjoyed by graduate student and advanced undergraduate student audiences....This volume does a superior job of bringing together theory, research, and applications of Rosenthal's initial work on interpersonal expectations. The first such systematic effort of its kind, the high quality and broad scope of the work, as well as the prominence of the contributors to the volume attest to the significant contributions Rosenthal has made to the field." John T. Copeland and Diana J. Kyle, Contemporary Psychology
