"....This distinctive, well-researched, well-written, and understandable introduction to group theory is highly recommended for secondary, public, and academic libraries, particularly those supporting sociology and psychology programs."-LIBRARY JOURNAL (starred review)
"....There are close to 300 articles making up these two volumes exploring the individual elements of group processes and intergroup relations, as well as where they merge. These articles cover broad categories ranging from theory and methodology to individual areas of interest... The diversity of the individual article coverage is impressive. The entries are steeped in scholarship and written by experts in the fields of social psychology, sociology, and organizational behavior.... The authors are successful in writing in an accessible style easily grasped by undergraduates and informed lay readers.... The Encyclopedia of Group Processes and Intergroup Relations is a title that has multi-disciplinary relevance. Undergraduates in fields as diverse as business, psychology, and sociology among others, could find themselves leafing through its pages."
