Identities, Groups and Social Issues by Margaret Wetherell

Book Description

'When considering a volume that has essentially the form of a textbook, particular criteria apply. It is important that it is accurate, up-to-date and covers an appropriate range of material in an accessible and stimulating manner. It is important that it is a flexible vehicle for use with diverse courses, and does not overly impose a particular or narrow intellectual structure. In all these respects, this text is to be recommended...Finally, it is important that all students of social psychology should try to see the historical and cultural linkages that extend across and through its subject area, and this is the other message that comes across from this exceptionally well thought-through book' - Journal of Community and Applied Social Psychology This accessible and authoritative textbook presents an engaging overview of social psychological research on groups, the development of social identity, intergroup relations and the process of making sense of social life. Unlike other textbooks in this area, this book has a broad focus. It covers a representative mix of European and North American research, but also draws on psychoanalysis, social theory, discourse analysis and feminist writing to develop accounts of topics such as racism, social influence, group dynamics, the workplace and masculine identities. Classic studies are set alongside the most recent research in social psychology. The result is a book which is rich in ideas, interdisciplinary in nature, combative and critical. This book has been developed as a Course Text for The Open University course Social Psychology: Personal Lives, Social Worlds (D317).

Emotion is an important topic in social science. This work - from a leading voice in the field - not only accessibly outlines the research from different fields, but is the first to pull it together to propose an agenda setting proposal for a definitive approach.

Identity in the 21st Century by Margaret Wetherell Identity in the 21st Century, Hardback (November 2009)

Bringing together leading scholars to investigate trends in contemporary social life, this book examines the current patterning of identities based on class and community, gender and generation, 'race', faith and ethnicity, and derived from popular culture, exploring debates about social change, individualization and the re-making of social class.

Theorizing Identities and Social Action by Margaret Wetherell Theorizing Identities and Social Action, Hardback (October 2009)

This collection brings together leading scholars to explore the 'doing' and 'making' of identities. Drawing on the highly innovative ESRC Identities and Social Action Programme, the chapters take core social actions -- such as performing, excluding, mixing, bonding -- and demonstrate how social practices and identities unfold together.

Identity, Ethnic Diversity and Community Cohesion by Margaret Wetherell Identity, Ethnic Diversity and Community Cohesion, Paperback (June 2007)

What is meant by community? Is there a balance between equality, integration and diversity? Does the idea of identity undermine community cohesion? This book considers these questions and explores the concept of identity and how its different meanings and interpretations impact upon community policy.
