Organized around the theme of self-censorship -- the disconnect between what people privately think or feel and how they act publicly -- this brief seven-chapter text introduces students to social psychology by focusing on the field's most interesting studies and real-world applications. An INVITATION TO SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY contains high-interest studies that will engage students as they convey how social psychologists think about social life. Dale Miller shows that the common and extreme forms of social behavior are more alike than unlike. With an emphasis on social interaction in everyday situations, he makes connections to students' lives as if to say "we've all been in this situation." AN INVITATION TO SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY covers fewer studies but in considerably more detail than a traditional introductory text. It includes textured descriptions, so students come away with a deeper understanding of the core methodologies used by social psychologists to understand the world from a social psychological perspective. Miller achieves the balance of crafting a social psychology text that is valuable to instructors, while at the same time interesting and fun for students. Miller's text can be used as either a core or supplemental text in an introductory or advanced social psychology course.

Dale T. Miller has a joint appointment in Stanford's Psychology Dept and Graduate Business School. Born in Canada, he received his BA from the University of Victoria and his Ph.D. from the University of Waterloo. Prior to joining the faculty at Stanford University in 2002, Miller held faculty positions at the University of Western Ontario, Simon Fraser University, University of British Columbia, and Princeton University. He has published articles in many different areas of social psychology but recently his research has focused on the impact of social norms on social life. He is co-editor with Deborah Prentice of "Cultural Divides: The social psychology of intergroup contact" and with Michael Ross of "The justice motive in everyday life." He has been a Fellow at both the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (Stanford) and the Institute for Advanced Study (Princeton). Miller has taught introductory social psychology for over thirty years.
