Overview

Written by well-known sociologists John D. DeLamater, Daniel J. Myers, and Jessica L. Collett, this fully revised and updated edition of Social Psychology is a highly accessible and engaging exploration of the question "what is it that makes us who we are?"

With hundreds of real-world examples, figures, and photographs and grounded in the latest research, the text explores such topics as self, attitudes, social influence, emotions, interpersonal attraction and relationships, and collective behavior. The book also explains the methods that social psychologists use to investigate human behavior in a social context and the theoretical perspectives that ground the discipline. Each chapter is a self-contained unit for ease of use in any classroom, beginning with focal questions that establish the issues being discussed and ending with a summary of key points, a list of key terms and concepts, and critical thinking questions.

John D. DeLamater is Conway-Bascom Professor of Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He has been teaching social psychology courses since 1970 and his current research and writing are focused on the effects of life-course transitions on sexuality.

Daniel J. Myers is Vice-President and Associate Provost for Faculty Affairs and Professor of Sociology at the University of Notre Dame.

Jessica L. Collett is Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Sociology at the University of Notre Dame, where she has been since 2006. Her research focuses on identity, emotion, and small group processes.
