    Introduction to Social Psychology provides students with a thought-provoking and engaging collection of readings that address the foundational principles and concepts of social psychology. Leveraging scholarly yet accessible articles, the anthology demonstrates how social psychology is interwoven into the tapestry of everyday life.

    The book contains eleven chapters, each of which address a specific concept of social psychology. Students read about impression management and self-presentation, casual attributions, levels of emotional display across global cultures, and implicit attitudes. Specific chapters address social influence, group behavior, aggression, altruism, attraction and relationships, and stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination. The anthology concludes with lists of suggested readings and videos, encouraging students to deepen their knowledge of introductory social psychology concepts.

    Introduction to Social Psychology is an excellent supplementary resource for foundational courses in psychology and social psychology.
