"You've got to hand it to that Sydney sunshine: not only does it attract some of the top minds in psychology to the Sydney Symposium each year (and there are stars aplenty in this year's group), but judging from the chapters in this volume it seems to elevate everyone's game. Chapter after chapter offers an insightful analysis of how intrapsychic and interpersonal processes (and their interaction) give rise to the complex, nuanced, and diverse social behavior we see around us everyday. The full range of what social psychology has to offer is on display here-from evolutionary to cognitive to social-cultural perspectives, and from current takes on classic theories to entirely new approaches-and this book should stand for quite some time as a valuable resource for students and researchers interested in the underpinnings of social life." - Professor Tom Gilovich, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY, USA
"Forgas and company (in this case Klaus Fiedler and Constantine Sedikides) have done it again! This time, putting out a must-have volume of recent converging and diverging thoughts and evidence on the relationship between social thought and social behavior with a stellar list of fresh and seasoned contributors." - Professor Jim Blascovich, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA, USA
"This volume poignantly illustrates the richness and diversity of the social cognition paradigm in application to a broad variety of psychological phenomena. Authored by stellar theorists and researchers, chapters in this book offer the reader insights into the problems, methods, and conceptual frameworks that define cutting-edge research in personality and social psychology. Another landmark volume in this important series, and a must-read for everyone interested in current directions and advances on fundamental psychological problems." - Arie W. Kruglanski, Distinguished University Professor, University of Maryland, College Park, USA
