Using current socio-political thought and research, the authors of Social Psychology – Identities and Relationships examine topics such as violence, social and political transition, race and racism, and sexualities. Identities and interpersonal relationships are used as ordering themes to create a book that is truly distinctive. Theoretical and empirical research is related to topical problems, highlighting the complex relations of individuals to their societies and to one another. The histories and complexities of problems and their interconnectedness are examined, and possible solutions suggested. Special attention is paid to class, sexuality, gender and race, making psychology in general, and social psychology in particular, relevant and exciting.
