Beginning with a concise introductory chapter focusing on German social psychology's geneology and heritage. The book covers such topics as problem solving in groups, responses to aggression and injustice, accounting for failure, the actions of various social systems, and cognitive approaches to social behavior. "If we may assume for a moment that these chapters represent the best in German-language social psychology, what can we say? First, we can say that the field is alive and well. The work is vigorous, theoretically sound, and informed." -Contemporary Sociology
