Overview

This volume in the Springer Series in Social Psychology examines the role of facial appearance in social behavior focusing on types of behavior such as persuasion and criminality, as well as on such contexts of social interactions as school and the workplace. The authors also include a discussion of adults' reactions to infants' facial appearance and of the age at which children can discriminate facial attractiveness and demonstrate prejudiced behavior. The most recent research on facial disfigurement and the arguments revolving around the role that psychology can play in discouraging facial prejudice are treated at length. The Social Psychology of Facial Appearance collates for the first time, at an advanced level, psychologists' findings in the field over recent decades.
