Editorial Reviews

"This is a beautifully written book. It manages to be both scholarly and comprehensive, as well as clear and engaging. It fulfilled all my expectations from the excellent first edition published in 1988. Brown very successfully manages to integrate American and European work on group processes, as well as cognitive, small group and intergroup perspectives. As such, he accurately captures the new integrative approach to the study of groups that is helping to reinvigorate this core topic of social psychology." Michael A. Hogg , University of Queensland, Australia Reviews of the Previous Edition: "Written with clarity and care, it emphasizes ideas over phenomena, and thus theoretical review over empirical summary. An excellent supplement in an upper-division undergraduate class." Contemporary Sociology
