D. T. Gilbert

ISBN: 978-0-471-19226-8 August 2003 464 Pages

Description

Edward E. Jones (1926-1993) was one of the most influential social psychologists of the twentieth century. This volume collects for the first time his most important works, including his seminal papers on the correspondence bias, the actor-observer effect, impression management strategies, and more.

An introduction by Daniel Gilbert, Professor of Psychology at Harvard University, provides a context for understanding Jones' important contributions to social psychology.

This collection is appropriate for supplemental reading in a graduate seminar on social psychology, social cognition, or person perception. It is also the perfect accompaniment to the other two texts in Wiley's social psychology series: Social Beings: A Core Motives to Social Psychology by Dr. Susan Fiske and The Selected Works of R.B. Zajonc by R.B. Zajonc.
