Title: Contemporary Social Psychological Theories.
Description: Stanford, CA :. Stanford University Press, 2006. Hardcover. No dustjacket. 400 pp.- This text presents the most important and influential social psychological theories and research programs in contemporary sociology. Original chapters by the scholars who initiated and developed these theoretical perspectives provide full descriptions of each theory, its background, development, and future.

A concluding chapter provides an analysis of and commentary on the state of the theoretical programs in sociological social psychology. Contributors: Peter J.
