This chapter introduces you to the study of social psychology. We begin by defining social psychology and identifying how it is distinct from but related to some other areas of study, both outside and within psychology. Next, we review the history of the field.
We conclude by looking forward, with a discussion of the important themes and perspectives that are propelling social psychology into a new century.
A few years from now, you may receive a letter in the mail inviting you to a high school or college reunion. What thoughts will come to mind first? Will you remember the poetry you finally began to appreciate in your junior year? Will you think about the excitement you felt when you completed your first chemistry lab? Will a tear form in your eye as you remember how inspiring your social psychology class was? But what will probably dominate your thoughts are the people you knew in school and the interactions you had with them—the long and intense discussions about everything imaginable: the loves you had, lost, or wanted so desperately to experience; the time you made a fool of yourself at a party; the effort of trying to be accepted by a fraternity, sorority, or clique of popular people; the day you sat in the pouring rain with your friends while watching a football game.
We focus on these social situations because we are social beings.
We forge our individual identities not alone but in the context of other people. We work, play, and live together. We hurt and help each other. We define happiness and success for each other. We visit family, make friends, give parties, build networks, go on dates, pledge an enduring commitment, decide to have children.
Instead, he showed George how much his life had touched the lives of others and how many people would be hurt if he was not a part of their world. One of the exciting aspects of learning about social psychology is discovering how basic and profoundly important these social relationships are to the human animal.

This book did the job. I ordered it for a class and it was fine. However, this was probably the most long and boring read for me out of all of my textbooks and I've had history and stats classes that required lots of reading.
The text was small, the material was wordy, and the information was arranged in a strange way that made it really frustrating to take notes. I typed up my notes instead of writing them by hand, because the information would be given out of order and I'd have to go back and add sections of notes. This was an interesting subject, but way the information was given made me dread reading the textbook.
One person found this helpful. Paperback Verified download. I am concerned about this book, it states right on the front of the book that it is unauthorized to sell this book within the U.
So I am unsure why it is being sold on site. This is a black and white copy, its a copied edition. Which doesn't bother me, I already have pdf version of the book.
However, I am concerned about owning an illegal copy. I would like feedback on if this could get me in trouble in anyway Otherwise the book is perfectly fine. This book is so well written and easy to read. The examples are so clear and I like the layout of the book.
It also provides chapter summaries at the end which I like in case I need a refresher after reading the chapter especially if you're like me and you don't read a whole chapter in one sitting. Great book! Kindle Edition Verified download. My book did not come on time, actually it did not come at all. I contacted site about this issue and thought we came to a resolution, resend the book. That never happened. I opted to get a refund and have the funds transferred back on my site account.
That did not happen. They sent the refund within business days. I had to reorder the book again, which took another day to arrive. Btw I had a test to study for and I was very unprepared! Thanks site. The book came nicely packaged. I was really impressed. The only bad thing is that the book is a little old and seems to be very delicate along the seam. Thankfully the pages are in tact but I don't know how much more use it's going to get. Phil said that when he was in college he would get his course textbooks and read them before he even enrolled into his classes.
He only reviewed what he had read when completing assignments, or taking tests. I took that lesson from the most popular psychlologist in the U.
Saul Kassin, Steven Fein, and Hazel Rose Markus combined their expertise and efforts to create a contemporary and highly meticulous introduction to social psychology which provides a breadth and depth of knowledge that offers lucid insights into how we, as individuals, think, feel, and behave in a social context. My favorite chapters were the ones that I feel speak to the heart of social psychology issues which are: All of which are presented in the backdrop of actual events for greater clarity of theories, and understanding of applications.
If you are interested in becoming a social psychologist, THIS is the the book for you. If you are a student and this book is being assigned as your textbook, consider yourself lucky; you will have a great knowledge base to draw from, and build upon.
Easy to read and surprisingly entertaining. I thought the collaborative work from these authors paid dividends in educating our young minds on the concepts and application of social psychology. Probably one of the best reads during my course studies. Ordered this book from class, it went on and on and on. Long chapters. See all reviews. Customers who viewed this item also viewed.
