The study of the interplay between the individual self and collective selves is an arena of rich theory and research in social psychology. Self and Social Identity is a collection of readings from the four--volume set of Blackwell Handbooks of Social Psychology that examine how group memberships shape the content of the individual's self concept and how the sense of self is expanded as a consequence of identification with other individuals and the group as a whole. * Collects readings from the four--volume set of Blackwell Handbooks of Social Psychology and includes introductions by two world--renowned researchers. * Provides a sampling of exciting research and theory that is both comprehensive and current and cross--cuts the levels of analysis from intrapersonal to intergroup. * Organized around two broad themes, 'self and identity' and 'group identities' and designed for course use.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This significant four--volume set will have immediate impact on the field. It includes contributions from leading international social psychologists on a broad range of topics involving intra--individual, personal, interpersonal, intergroup, and societal processes. The chapters, which focus on traditional and emerging areas, are uniformly scholarly and interesting. By skillfully assembling a mosaic of chapters on focused topics, Brewer and Hewstone have captured both the expansiveness and conceptual depth of the field while offering novel and insightful perspectives on social psychology." John F. Dovidio, Colgate University "The subject matter considered in these books is well balanced and varied giving the reader a wide ranging view of the discipline. Each volume stands well on it's own but the four together make a complete overview of the subject. These volumes will enhance everyonea s understanding of the subject from student to academic. I thoroughly recommend them" Social Psychological Review, October 2005
