Description

For this unique text focused on the social psychology of justice, the authors have assembled the most current information relating to five major questions. These questions look specifically at how justice is defined, how it influences individuals thoughts and actions and shapes their behavior, and when and why it matters. The underlying unifying theme is that individuals do care about issues of fairness in their interactions with others, with groups, and with institutions they support or oppose.Using this theme as their guidepost, the authors explore research on relative deprivation, distributive justice, procedural justice, and retributive justice. Extensive use of examples drawn from contemporary culture make this book an informative and engaging collection of the most current thinking about topics such as diversity, gender, equal pay, personal satisfaction, third-party dispute management, crime, cultural preservation, and scarcity theory. This text will be a valuable source for advanced courses on social justice, interpersonal relations, negotiation, intergroup conflict, and group processes in social psychology, political science, sociology, and legal studies. }For this unique text focused on the social psychology of justice, the authors have assembled the most current information relating to five major questions.
