Rowman & Littlefield, 2002 - 373 страници
Students of social psychology can read in this new text original writings assembled from the founders of sociology in the nineteenth century to the latest influential works by contemporary sociologists today. Rousseau's introductory sections provide biographical and theoretical context that bridges the intellectual developments in each chapter and orients students to the topics and themes ahead. The classic essays comprising this book are presented chronologically, but fall into two major branches of study: symbolic interaction and personality and social structure. This book shows the significant contributions made in these areas and demonstrates how these two branches share a common history. Together the readings lead students to a greater realization that there is much potential power in the hands of individuals. The value of studying social psychology is in acquiring a greater appreciation of not only of oneself, but also of how one's behavior is affected by, and affects, social interaction and the larger society. Readers can gain from this book a greater appreciation of social history, deeper self-knowledge, and a heightened sense of civic concern and responsibility.
