""The subject matter considered in these books is well balanced and varied giving the reader a wide ranging view of the discipline. Each volume stands well on it’s own but the four together make a complete overview of the subject. These volumes will enhance everyone's understanding of the subject from student to academic. I thoroughly recommend them"" Social Psychological Review, October 2005
