Review:

'I will never use another textbook for my social psychology courses!’ Dr Martin Hagger, University of Nottingham

 ‘Hogg & Vaughan is the most comprehensive social psychology text on the market and covers material in a more sophisticated manner than the competition. Moreover, the chapters on culture, self/identity, and language provide information that is often lacking.’ Dr Mark Burgess, Oxford Brookes University

‘I use the fourth edition of Hogg & Vaughan for my first-year class and can say that it makes teaching social psychology interesting and fun! The writing style is clear and engaging and conveys the passion of the authors even with difficult and potentially “dry” material.’ Dr Anja Eller, University of St Andrews

From the Back Cover:

I will never use another textbook for my social psychology courses!’ Dr Martin Hagger, University of Nottingham

 A man enters a café, greets with a kiss on each cheek a young woman waiting for him at a table, and sits opposite her. He orders them both an espresso and subsequently dominates the conversation about a recently released film. How would a social psychologist go about explaining this rather ordinary event?

Reflecting the links between social psychology and our everyday lives, the fifth edition of this market-leading textbook provides a lively and accessible introduction to the field.
