Recent work in social psychology has questioned the assumptions and practices of traditional research and debate in the field. Critical Social Psychology pulls these new strands together in a major overview of key theoretical, political, and empirical developments. The book assembles leading figures in the field to address both the need for a critical perspective in social psychology and the many strands of discussion that have informed that critique. The chapters are accessible and passionately argued, ranging over political critique in a postmodern world, the status of qualitative methods, realism versus relativism, and the question of subjectivity from a critical perspective. Critical Social Psychology offers a fascinating tour of debates that are shaping the field today by its leading exponents. It will be essential reading for students and academics in social psychology.
