Description: In print for nearly 30 years, Susan Fiske and Shelley Taylor's classic Social Cognition textbook has become so celebrated as the essential go-to resource that it is almost synonymous with the field itself. Now, a new edition of the most recent version of the textbook, Social Cognition: From Brains to Culture 2nd Edition, has been released by SAGE for the global market, ready once again to excite a new generation of faculty and students alike. The field of social cognition has exploded in exciting 21st century directions; people making sense of themselves and others creates universally appealing psychological science. In the intervening years since the previous edition, this appeal has stretched out beyond its traditional borders to capture the imaginations of new audiences as well. Now, Social Cognition: From Brains to Culture 2nd Edition is not only a must-read in current psychology but also bridging from social psychology to social neuroscience and to cultural approaches, as well as developmental, clinical, educational, health, political, and cognitive psychology too. Fiske and Taylor, as with all previous editions, have carefully integrated the latest insights whilst at the same time keeping true to their original story about what social cognition is and why it's significant for society today. As a textbook, this new edition is even more class-friendly than ever before. Every updated chapter now includes more figures and tables, glossary entries, and further reading, as well as links to two other the titles co-edited by Susan Fiske, The SAGE Handbook of Social Cognition (expert reviews of specific areas) and the SAGE Major Work in Social Cognition (classic and current readings). Finally, a supplemental test bank along with PowerPoint slides for instructors will be made available online at: www.sagepub.co.uk/fiskeandtaylor upon publication. This new revision will be indispensable to students of social cognition and social psychology worldwide, at undergraduate or graduate level.
