Exploring Social Psychology succinctly explores social psychological science and applies it to contemporary issues and everyday life. Based on the bestselling text, Social Psychology by David Myers and Jean Twenge, the book presents 31 short modules that introduce students to such scientific explorations as love and hate, conformity and independence, prejudice and helping, and persuasion and self-determination. Exploring Social Psychology represents social psychology’s scope and highlights its scientific study of how we think about, influence, and relate to one another. The 9th edition includes Connect and SmartBook, the adaptive reading and study experience which guides students to master, recall, and apply key concepts while providing automatically-graded assessments.
