A comprehensive overview and analysis of one of the most influential theories in psychology is offered in this volume. Based on the pioneering work of social psychologist Kurt Lewin, it outlines the work of several generations of international field theorists and attests to the durability and utility of Lewin's work. Essays trace the history and development of field theory and discuss its various applications in a number of settings. Topics addressed include managing social conflict, self-help groups, field theory and the construction of social problems and academic sex discrimination.
