The study of the interplay between the individual self and collective selves is an arena of rich theory and research in social psychology. Self and Social Identity is a collection of readings from the four-volume set of Blackwell Handbooks of Social Psychology that examine how group memberships shape the content of the individual’s self concept and how the sense of self is expanded as a consequence of identification with other individuals and the group as a whole.
