The content of this adaptation balances gently between global and classical research, experiments and studies that students need to know (e.g. Stanford Prison Experiment) and local examples that students can relate to and engage with (e.g. Cronulla riots). We have responded to reviewer feedback by providing new content or expanded areas like marriage and prosocial behaviours, and new pedagogy like end of chapter questions and review questions tagged to learning objectives help students to engage in the material from the outset making this text accessible to all levels. Case studies of how social psychology research is undertaken, and `The Inside Story?, where famous researchers highlight the interests and questions that guided their findings, both prepare students to critically evaluate research and science. This text aims to give students from all backgrounds an experience that is solidly scientific, warmly human, factually rigorous and intellectually provocative. It stimulates students? thinking and motivates them to inquire, to analyse and to relate principles to everyday happenings. Tie all this in with the digital offerings of Connect featuring Learnsmart and you have a complete package that your students will respond to!
