Summary

Critical Social Psychology introduces students, in a straightforward, practical and accessible way, to key themes and debates arising from this fast-growing - and often complex - field. The authors contrast mainstream experimental and critical understandings of social psychological topics, and place the criticism and theory in a societal context.
