This collection of readings gives students exposure to a wide variety of perspectives in the field of social psychology. Each of the fifteen chapters begins with an introduction and is followed by three articles: one general ("popular"), one classic, and one contemporary. The articles are followed by critical questions designed to facilitate comprehension and encourage discussion. The use of both popular readings and research articles provides students with a broad range of views and theories within the discipline of social psychology.The topical organization of the collection directly parallels Baron/Byrne/Bramscombe's Social Psychology, Eleventh Edition. However, Readings in Social Psychology can be used with any social psychology textbook, or as a stand-alone reader in courses that do not use full textbooks.Provides a unique combination of popular, classic, and contemporary selections on each topic, exposing students to the different sources of information in the field. "Critical Thinking" questions ask students to examine different aspects of the articles presented, as well as assess the implications of psychological research in their own lives. Articles are presented in their entirety. Classic articles are followed by a list of "Additional Related Readings" for students who wish to review more contemporary articles on the same topic. Chapter introductions draw a correlation between the three articles in each chapter, illustrating how they each relate to one another. New articles selected from both popular publications and professional journals are more readable and user-friendly than in previous editions.
