Reviews

@qu:"An impressive and representative presentation of what the field has accomplished in the last twenty-five years. The contributions to the current volume are of the high quality we have come to expect." @source:--George R. Goethals in CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY @qu:"For the past two decades, the... series has served a special function for social psychology--one that has not been filled as well by any other single publication. The chapters discuss individual substantive areas within the field at a middle level of abstraction and detail. The articles are more focused than handbook chapters and less cursory than annual review chapters. In addition, they often summarize the author's own research program and review past research through the filter of the author's theoretical perspective." @source:--CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY @qu:"This volume does have value for active researchers, especially those who are already knowledgeable in the area... Some of the chapters offer fresh perspectives and methods that could be very beneficial to further work on the self, and other chapters offer good summaries of recent research programs." @source:--CONTEMPORARY SOCIOLOGY @qu:"These volumes have become a standard reference over the past couple of decades... Presents a well-balanced picture of work in experimental social psychology." @source:--CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY


About the Serial Editors

Mark Zanna Serial Editor

Mark P. Zanna is a retired University Professor and former Chair of Psychology at the University of Waterloo. He received his BA (‘66) and PhD (‘70) from Yale University. Professor Zanna’s area of research is the psychology of attitudes. Primarily funded over the years by grants from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, he has studied attitude structure and function, attitude formation and change, communication and persuasion (including the persistence of persuasion), and the attitude-behaviour relation. He has also conducted research on (a) overcoming resistance to persuasion, including research on subliminal priming and persuasion, self-affirmation and persuasion, and narrative persuasion, and (b) implicit attitudes (i.e., relatively automatic, intuitive evaluations), including research on aversive racists (i.e., those individuals who test low on thoughtful, conscious measures of prejudice, but high on more automatic, intuitive measures of prejudice) and defensive self-esteem (i.e., those individuals who test high on thoughtful, conscious measures of self-esteem, but low on more automatic, intuitive measures of self-esteem). In the domain of health promotion, he has evaluated a ‘safer sex’ intervention and tested the subtle effects (e.g., on implicit norms) of movie stars’ smoking in feature films. Currently, he is investigating the causes and consequences of negative implicit norms toward females in STEM disciplines.
