Second Edition


May 2004 | 336 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Alex Haslam has thoroughly revised and updated his ground-breaking original text with this new edition. While still retaining the highly readable and engaging style of the best-selling First Edition, the author presents extensive reviews and critiques of major topics in organizational psychology - including leadership, motivation, communication, decision making, negotiation, power, productivity and collective action - in this thoroughly revised edition. 

New to the Second Edition:

  • An entirely new chapter on organizational stress which deals with highly topical issues of stress appraisal, social support, coping and burnout.
  • New, wider textbook format and design making the entire book much more accessible for students.
  • A wide range of pedagogical features are included - suggestions for further reading at the end of each chapter and comprehensive glossaries of social identity, social psychological and organizational terms

Praise for the first edition of Psychology in Organizations:

"A novel, yet timely, application of the social identity approach to the organizational domain simultaneously integrating the existing research and providing a model for theoretical and practical progress within the discipline.... All in all, an entertaining and groundbreaking book that serves a multitude of purposes across a wide range of disciplines. I can only hope that it becomes required reading"

Psychology in Society

"An excellent overview of what organizations are all about….. A truly outstanding explanation [of] Social Identity Theory and Self-Categorization Theory and[their] links to organizational behaviour…. The book shows us in an elegant way that social psychologists have the potential to make a big impact on the organizational field…. Very useful and informative reading…. A beautiful example of integration"

European Bulletin of Social Psychology

"The principal merit of Haslam's book is to present the first extensive overview of the predictors, moderators and consequences of social identification in organizations. There is no comparable outline of the theory.... We like this book and we believe that it is needed"

European Journal of Organizational Psychology


This is the book for the approved syllabus. The past Professor found great success with the book!
