Psychology recognises no borders. The relationships between people and the groups they form are determined by similar principles no matter where in the world they come from. This book has been written to introduce students from all countries and backgrounds to the exciting field of social psychology. Recognising the limitations that come from studying the subject through the lens of any one culture, James Alcock and Stan Sadava have crafted a truly international social psychology book for the modern era. Based on classic and cutting-edge scholarship from across the world, An Introduction to Social Psychology encourages mastery of the basics as well as critical thinking. Incorporating relevant insights from social neuroscience, evolutionary theory and positive psychology, it offers coverage of: * How groups form, function and fight * How we are attracted to others and what is this thing called love * The origins of our values, attitudes and prejudices * The "madness" of crowds and how the people surrounding us cause us to act in ways we never would alone * The impact of new means of social interaction, including social media A companion website will be available on publication at www.sagepub.co.uk/alcocksadava.
