Synopsis

Encyclopedia of Group Processes and Intergroup Relations by John M. Levine

The social psychology of groups forms an integral component of mainstream social psychology courses throughout the western world. It is also of interest to intersecting disciplines such as sociology, organizational and cross-cultural psychology, and language and communication studies. This double volume encyclopedia (the only one in existence) will cover concepts from across the spectrum, from group phenomena to phenomena influenced by group membership, from small group interaction to intergroup relations on a global scale. The proposed Encyclopedia would contain over 400 concepts, written by an international and interdisciplinary gathering of researchers and cover the following topic areas: Methods Theory Cognition Types of Groups Organizations Influence and Persuasion Prejudice and Discrimination Decision Making Conflict and Cooperation Group Structure Group Performance Intergroup Relations in Society Identity and Self

Reviews

....There are close to 300 articles making up these two volumes exploring the individual elements of group processes and intergroup relations, as well as where they merge. These articles cover broad categories ranging from theory and methodology to individual areas of interest... The diversity of the individual article coverage is impressive. The entries are steeped in scholarship and written by experts in the fields of social psychology, sociology, and organizational behavior.... The authors are successful in writing in an accessible style easily grasped by undergraduates and informed lay readers.... The Encyclopedia of Group Processes and Intergroup Relations is a title that has multi-disciplinary relevance. Undergraduates in fields as diverse as business, psychology, and sociology among others, could find themselves leafing through its pages. -- Tom Gilson * Against the Grain April 2010 * ....This distinctive, well-researched, well-written, and understandable introduction to group theory is highly recommended for secondary, public, and academic libraries, particularly those supporting sociology and psychology programs. -LIBRARY JOURNAL (starred review) -- LIBRARY JOURNAL ....A unique resource.... This well-written and understandable overview of the group processes field should be in every library that supports the study of social psychology, sociology, or business. Summing Up: Essential. Lower-level undergraduates through researchers/ faculty; general readers. **** -- M. Sylvia
