Description - The Social Psychology of Everyday Life by Michael Argyle
All too often social psychology concerns itself with situations that far divorced from the realities of everyday life. In The Social Psychology of Everyday Life Michael Argyle concentrates on real-life settings and emphasises the practical applications of what psychology is able to tell us. He provides an up-to-date review of what is known about some of the most interesting and important areas of social psychology, embracing embracing biological, historical and sociological factors as well as psychological. He loods at the central areas that make up our everday lives and covers many of the most pressing concerns of the day: conflict and aggression, racial prejudice, leisure, work and unemployment, religious beliefs, social class, relationships, health and happiness. Written by one of the leading social psychologists of our day, this comprehensive account of the psychology of everyday life will be an important text for students of psychology and sociology, and for anyone whose course involves a psychology component.
