The study of the interplay between the individual self and collective selves is an arena of rich theory and research in social psychology. Self and Social Identity is a collection of readings from the four--volume set of Blackwell Handbooks of Social Psychology that examine how group memberships shape the content of the individual's self concept and how the sense of self is expanded as a consequence of identification with other individuals and the group as a whole. * Collects readings from the four--volume set of Blackwell Handbooks of Social Psychology and includes introductions by two world--renowned researchers. * Provides a sampling of exciting research and theory that is both comprehensive and current and cross--cuts the levels of analysis from intrapersonal to intergroup. * Organized around two broad themes, 'self and identity' and 'group identities' and designed for course use.
