A one-of-a-kind social psychology book that inspires readers to be awake in the world.
In this new, Sixth Edition, Jodi OBrien continues to explore the historical development of the concept of the self, and help readers see the patterns we use to make sense of our own lives. The book introduces the major theories, concepts, and perspectives of contemporary social psychology in a uniquely engaging manner. Compelling original essays that provide an overarching framework are followed by a wide-ranging set of readings. By grounding social psychology in student experiences and explaining theories through stories and narratives, this one-of-a-kind book helps students understand the forces that shape their feelings, thoughts, and actions.
