Exploring Social Psychology / Edition 7

Exploring Social Psychology succinctly explores social psychological science and applies it to contemporary issues and everyday life. Based on the bestselling text, Social Psychology by David Myers and Jean Twenge, the book presents 31 short modules—each readable in a single sitting—that introduce students to such scientific explorations as love and hate, conformity and independence, prejudice and helping, and persuasion and self-determination. The Connect course for this offering includes SmartBook, an adaptive reading and study experience which guides students to master, recall, and apply key concepts while providing automatically-graded assessments.
