Social psychology is the study of how normal people think, feel, and behave as influenced by (real or imagined) others. This collection picks up from Michael Hogg's influential set, Social Psychology, published in 2002 to set out and explain the several changes the field has gone through since the mid-nineties. Social psychology now places more emphasis on studying the brain, cognitive-to-bodily effects, and goal pursuit. To be sure, classic topics such as prejudice, motivation, emotion, and interpersonal relationships are prominent still as this collection also illustrates. The articles selected include influential theories and conceptual reviews, feature empirical articles on edgy new theories, showcase state-of-the-art methodological advances, and cover topics of perennial interest in the field.

A variety of theoretical approaches to person-environment psychology has been developed over the years, representing a rich range of intellectual perspectives. This second edition links the past and present and looks toward the future in reviewing new directions and perspectives in person-environment psychology. Stated differently, the main thrust of this volume is to present contemporary models and perspectives that make some sensible predictions concerning the individual and the environment using the person-environment relationship. Within a person-environment framework, these models and perspectives are concerned with how people tend to influence environments and how environments reciprocally tend to influence people. Thus, this second edition presents new directions in person-environment psychology and the implications for theory, research, and application.

Measurement of attitudes is one of the most frequent activities of empirically working social scientists. Although sociologists, social psychologists, psychometricians, political and educational scientists, statisticians and market researchers are involved in this activity, there is no continuous exchange of theoretical ideas and methods between these disciplines. This book is a first step in bringing together relevant approaches of attitude theory, measurement and analysis; attitudes towards objects as well as attitudes towards behavior; structural determinants of attitudes and their quantitative contribution to the explained variance of attitudes; measurement models and test theoretical models as alternative approaches for scaling attitudes, statistical techniques for estimating parameters of attitude models, and finally measurement and effects of response sets. Corresponding to these different facets of the attitude measurement process, the book is organized in five parts. Research using attitudes needs simultaneous information from all areas represented in the five parts of this book.
