From the PublisherThis excellent volume represents a paradigm shift in how we thinkabout the individual and the group. It is a welcome re-balance ofour collective belief that conformity reigns in groups, and insteadinvites 'rebels' back into social psychology. For anyone seriouslyinterested in group processes, this is a must-read. The volumeilluminates us about when groups appreciate mavericks and deviants,and more broadly, it questions whether defiance on the part ofindividuals is rejected out-of-hand by groups and serves toenlighten us about the conditions under which variation anddifference are not only tolerated but are applauded. The stronginternational contributions in this timely volume will shape thecourse of scholarship on groups in the years ahead.
