This Volume is everything one would want from a handbook. - Choice Magazine

"The Handbook is a tour de force survey of current Social Psychology… it makes an excellent resource for personal use by researchers, graduate students and perhaps advanced undergraduates who are seeking an in-depth background treatment of major topics."         Professor Richard C. Sherman, Miami University

"The Handbook maps on to my current curricula perfectly. I've been searching for a text that is comprehensive, yet reader-friendly, and this text does a terrific job in both of these regards." - Professor John R. Chambers, University of Florida

The SAGE Handbook of Social Psychology has, since its publication in 2003, lived up to its intentions of being a definitive resource for advanced students and researchers in social psychology as well as those in cognate disciplines throughout the world. Authored by leading scholars in the field, it is both comprehensive in scope, authoritative and scholarly. In response to market demand, The SAGE Handbook of Social Psychology: Concise Student Edition will be published in early 2007 and represents a slimmer, more course-focused and student-friendly volume than the original Handbook. The editors and authors have also updated all references, provided chapter introductions and summaries and a new Preface outlining the benefits of using the Handbook as an upper level teaching resource. It will prove indispensable reading for all upper level and graduate students studying social psychology.

"This volume is everthing one would want from a one-volume handbook of social psychology or, indeed, of any scientific discipline. Comprehensive in scope, authoritative, clearly written, and detailed, it covers not only the usual topics one would expect in such a survey--history, methodology, social cognition, emotions, interpersonal relations and relationships, and group processes, both positive and negative--but also those especially relevant to social psychology as it enters its second century. The volume is edited by two of the most prominent social psychologists in their own right, and the list of contributors is a veritable who's who of the discipline but also includes a number of younger and non-US-based scholars. Essential. No library should be without this book."
