Praise for the Series: "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." -CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY "These volumes have become a standard reference over the past couple of decades... Presents a well-balanced picture of work in experimental social psychology." -CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY
