Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This excellent volume represents a paradigm shift in how we think about the individual and the group. It is a welcome re-balance of our collective belief that conformity reigns in groups, and instead invites 'rebels' back into social psychology. For anyone seriously interested in group processes, this is a must-read. The volume illuminates us about when groups appreciate mavericks and deviants, and more broadly, it questions whether defiance on the part of individuals is rejected out-of-hand by groups and serves to enlighten us about the conditions under which variation and difference are not only tolerated but are applauded. The strong international contributions in this timely volume will shape the course of scholarship on groups in the years ahead.
