Overview

Until now, the substantial topic of time in social psychology has been scattered throughout the literature of the behavioural sciences and not readily accessible to researchers and students. This volume brings together the work of prominent scholars in social and environmental psychology who present recent empirical and experimental data, integrative treatments of research literature and powerful conceptual analyses of theoretical issues. Collectively, the chapters represent a comprehensive treatment of the social psychology of time.
