About the Book

Social Influences looks at how we perceive ourselves and others and how this can influence our behaviour. It includes stereotyping and prejudice, obedience and conformity, collective behaviour and leadership.

Reviews

'Accessibly written. I particularly liked the way the author links contemporary examples of social behaviour with academic investigations by social psychologists.' - Sue Carter, Open University and A-level Senior Examiner

About the Series

Routledge Modular Psychology

The Routledge Modular Psychology series is a completely new approach to introductory level psychology, tailor made to the new modular style of teaching.

Each short book covers a topic in more detail than any large textbook can, allowing teacher and student to select material exactly to suit any particular course or project.

The books have been written especially for those students new to higher level study, whether at school home, college or university.

They include specially designed features to help with technique, such as model essay at an average level with an examiners comments to show how extra marks can be gained. The authors are all examiners and teachers at introductory level.

The Routledge modular texts are all user friendly and accessible and include the following features:

  • Practice essays with specialist commentary to show how to achieve a higher grade
  • Chapter summaries to assist with revision
  • Progress and review exercises
  • Glossary of key terms
  • Summaries of key research
  • Further reading to stimulate ongoing study and research
  • Website addresses for additional information
  • Cross-referencing to other books in the series
