Overview

<>This text, written by a team of sociologists, introduces students to social psychology by focusing on the contributions of sociology to this field, and on the perspectives, theories, and issues that are of the greatest importance to sociology.

This text emphasizes sociological work in the field, such as the effect of larger social-structural conditions on individuals and groups, and theories/perspectives from macrosociology. Also, it reflects more of the issues that sociologists are concerned with, such as social inequality, than psychology texts do.

The 2nd edition now includes new concepts, theories, and methodologies such as frame analysis, identity control theory, and autoethnography, to name a few.
