Review:

'The problem with most texts so far in this field is that they are written in a jargon-laden way, assuming theoretical starting points that many just do not understand. These authors keep their eye firmly on a student audience unfamiliar with these issues, accessibly covering the debates surrounding traditional social and critical social psychology by deliberately reproducing the format of a traditional social psychology textbook, and tracking the issues and debates from mainstream work as they introduce critical ideas.' - Professor Ian Parker, Manchester Metropolitan University

'I am very impressed. By offering a synthesis in a clear and accessible style it is doing something many of the other available texts do not...A refreshing change... [It] makes excellent use of engaging and relevant everyday examples while simultaneously reviewing an impressive range of literature and citing the most salient research.' - Susan Lea, Teaching Fellow and Associate Head of Psychology, University of Plymouth
