The Handbook of Social Psychology
From the Publisher: First published in 1935, The Handbook of Social Psychology was the first major reference work to cover the field of social psychology. The field has since evolved and expanded tremendously, and in each subsequent edition, The Handbook of Social Psychology is still the foremost reference that academics, researchers, and graduate students in psychology turn to for the most current, well-researched, and thorough information covering the field of social psychology. This volume of the Fifth Edition covers the science of social psychology and the social being.

“The social psychology in this book is not parochial to sociologists; it demonstrates the value of integrating the more quantitative research tradition in psychological social psychology with some of the qualitative and theoretical breadth of sociological social psychology. A valuable resource for libraries serving undergraduate and graduate programs in social psychology.” (K.M. McKinley; Social and Behavioral Sciences, 41:6)
“The broad focus of most of the chapters and the appreciation they convey of the history of research and theory should maintain the Handbook’s importance as the best distillation of the foundations of current knowledge in social psychology.” –Contemporary Psychology (on the third ed.)
