Readings in Social Psychology: General, Classic, and Contemporary Selectionsis a collection of readings in social psychology that systematically exposes the reader to a variety of articles in social psychology accompanied by critical thinking and integrative questions. Other books of readings in social psychology tend to use articles from just one type of publication (e.g., general readership articles such as those in Psychology Today) or they use articles from professional publications that have been edited and shortened by the book author. This book utilizes these general, classic, and contemporary sources of material to provide the reader with exposure to the scope and variety of information available in social psychology. Additionally, all articles are presented in their entirety; not one word has been changed. This detailed exposure of the reader to these full-length articles, especially the classic and contemporary sources, provides a level of understanding not found in abridged materials. Furthermore, understanding of the material and the possible connections of the articles to other topics and to the readers own lives is accomplished by the "Critical Thinking Questions" found with each article, and the "Chapter Integration Questions" help to promote critical thinking and bring together the articles in each chapter.
