  7. New: Psychology and Politics

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It offers one of the most lucid, accessible, incisive, and appealing introductions to social identity theory currently available. - John Jost, Department of Psychology, New York University, USA

  8. Just Published: Leadership and Coherence

    Leadership and Coherence investigates how leaders justify their decisions, and how they bring about coherence amongst followers. Taking a cognitive approach, it builds on the work of Hannah Arendt to attempt a phenomenology of judgment, examining how the moral imperative experienced by leaders can be shared by their community so both leader and led are guided by a mutual purpose.

  9. Just Published: Warring with Words

    "The dynamics of communication and persuasion are overwhelmingly carried by what is said, how arguments are framed, and how factual information is 'spun.' In this timely volume the authors, all leading experts in their respective fields, examine this all important topic of human interaction. A must read for all those with an interest in the processes of social influence and in the secrets of effectively 'saying things with words." - Arie W. Kruglanski, Ph.D., University of Maryland

  10. Congratulations to Roger Giner-Sorolla!

    Judging Passions: Moral Emotions in Persons and Groups has been shortlisted for the British Psychological Society Book Award (Academic Monograph category) 2014! Judging Passions asks if we should be concerned that important moral judgments can be swayed by "hot" passions, such as anger, disgust, guilt, shame and sympathy. Drawing on extensive research, including many studies from the author’s own lab, the book shows why emotions work to encourage reasonable moral behavior – and why they sometimes fail.
