I found this text to be well laid out and very comprehensible - engaging and user friendly. For the undergraduate students that I teach, this text is concise and pitched at the right level. I appreciate the turn towards some critical perspectives within social psychology to encourage the student's critical mentality. -- Dr Joe Hinds
Very exciting and potentially transformative - this is a book that is truly global in scope. -- Dr Victoria Scaife
