Social Psychology remains one of the most scholarly and well-written textbooks in its field, the textbook also include comprehensive coverage of social cognition and evolutionary psychology, and features authoritative material on social psychology and the law. I needed this textbook for a class and I usually trade them in or sell them at the end of the semester. I'm going to keep this one and add it to my personal library. Highly recommend it.
