This textbook is designed for upper-level undergraduate (2nd to 4th year in North America) and graduate classes. This book would have the following features designed to set it apart from the field and give it both considerable appeal to students and provide a marketing edge: International appeal: The authors come from three different countries, which will help in marketing the book, and also help create a genuinely international product. This book will be readily marketable in Europe, Australasia, and North America. Social psychology and evolutionary psychology approach: But will adopt a broad perspective using material from cognitive science (including brain-imaging studies), developmental psychology, anthropology, comparative psychology, clinical psychology, genetic research, sociology, and biology. This truly inter-disciplinary approach will be unique. Lively, personalised writing, with a journalistic flavour. The chapters will also include summaries at the end, and will pay special attention to providing superbly written and engaging hooks at the beginnings of each chapter. The addition of autobiographical tid bits about authors and the use of vivid real-life examples will add a narrative tone, and liven up the text. The book will be rigorous and stay true to the science. But it will also communicate the excitement and cutting-edge developments in this area. The authors propose, for example, to include one or two boxed controversies for each chapter, and emphasise the importance of critical thinking and getting past the platitudes of conventional wisdom. The latest research and thinking will be featured, but also the classic studies and the history of work in each area will be covered. The book will provide a balanced and ecumenical approach to the field, but will also advance arguments and develop clear themes. Attractive and inviting in two color design. It will include photos and relevant line art. A full set of power point slides will also be designed by the authors with help from the publisher for use by course instructors, and will have web site and instructors' test bank.

W. Steven Rholes, PhD, is Professor and Head of the Department of Psychology at Texas A&M University. He has conducted research programs in social cognition, children's social development, and adult attachment since receiving a degree in psychology from Princeton University in 1978. In 1992, along with his colleague Jeffry Simpson, Dr. Rholes published one of the first studies to confirm predictions about avoidant attachment style, using behavioral observations as evidence. For the past decade, the impact of attachment styles on emotional support sought and provided by members of romantic couples has been the central focus of his research program. Dr. Rholes has also served in two administrative positions, department chair and associate dean, during this period. Jeffry A. Simpson, PhD, is Professor of Psychology at the University of Minnesota. Formerly, he was Professor of Psychology at Texas A&M University. Dr. Simpson received his doctorate in psychology from the University of Minnesota in 1986. His research focuses on interpersonal relationships, evolution and social behavior, and social influence, and he serves as Associate Editor for the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology.
