Frontiers of Social Psychology

Series Editor: Arie W. Kruglanski, Joseph P. Forgas

Frontiers of Social Psychology is a new series of domain-specific handbooks.

The Editors and contributors are all internationally renowned scholars, whose work is at the cutting-edge of research.

Scholarly, yet accessible, the volumes in the Frontiers series are an essential resource for senior undergraduates, postgraduates, researchers, and practitioners, and are suitable as texts in advanced courses in specific sub-areas of social psychology.
