In this book twenty-five of the world's most eminent social psychologists address what they see as the principal lessons to be learned from the study of social psychology. In doing this they provide their own provocative and original answers to the key questions for social psychology and other related social sciences, as well as a wealth of specific, up-to-date insights into the practical applications of social psychology, its key phenomena and theoretical ideas, the history of the field, and the practice conducting social psychological research.

"The contributors include notable social psychologists representing several generations, several theoretical perspectives, and a variety of content areas. Thus, the volume does a nice job of giving the reader a number of different, yet generally representative, opinions to consider. For students with some background in social psychology... the volume is likely to be informative and interesting, and it could serve as the impetus for thought and discussion. The chapters are likely to spark discussion, either by telling readers what has been learned from social psychology or by telling them what social psychology should be. Either way, the volume will stimulate graduate students, teachers, and researchers to reconsider some basic issues and perhaps see their own and other investigatorsa research in a broader context."
