This textbook is suitable for the following courses: Social Psychology and Fundamentals of Social Psychology.

Principles of Social Psychology is a comprehensive text covering all of the traditional topics. Rather than relying on “modules” or “appendices” of applied materials, Stangor integrates applied concepts to the text itself. Stangor weaves applications from other disciplines throughout the text, such as Business and Consumer Behavior, Politics and Government, Health and Behavior, and Law.

New in This Version:
  • Updated discussion of our human evolutionary past.
  • Expanded discussions of evolutionary psychology, explicit racism, intergroup violence, and contemporary theories of morality.
  • Updated figures and added in-text guidelines for interpreting figures that depict statistical interactions.
  • New chapter openers, including the benefits of mindfulness, the Trump presidential campaign, the 2017 Quebec City mosque attack, racism and the Black Lives Movement, and global warming as a social dilemma.
  • Added a number of citations related to the effects of social media use on personality and behavior.
