The 8th edition of this trusted, market leading text continues to place social psychology in an international, contemporary context while exploring cutting edge research and bringing classic theories to life for students in Australia and New Zealand.

Social Psychology retains the structure and approach of previous editions, and is framed by the same scientific and educational philosophy. With an improved narrative, this edition has been significantly rewritten for greater accessibility and contains updated real-world examples, figures, boxes and photos.
