Social Groups in Action and Interaction (2nd Edition) – eBook PDF
Social Groups in Action and Interaction, 2nd Edition, (PDF) reviews and evaluates the human group as it operates to build both social good and, potentially, social harm. It condenses current knowledge and modern research, with real-world examples in concise yet interesting chapters, to assist students to understand and predicting group behavior. Unlike other ebooks, the textbook considers a wide range of topics—such as leadership, task performance, conformity, social identity, prejudice, and discrimination—from both an intragroup and an intergroup viewpoint. By looking at behavior both in and between groups, it links the gap between these interconnected approaches.
The updated 2nd edition is comprehensively updated to include a new discussion of the biology and neuroscience of group formation, the latest developments in social identity theory, and contemporary advances in the study of social networks. It also includes questions for review and discussion in the classroom.
It offers the most comprehensive and essential resource for courses on group dynamics and behavior.
