Covering theory and current research, this textbook for undergraduates explains the psychology of attitudes, how they are formed and changed, and how they affect thoughts and behavior. Sections cover measuring attitudes, origins of attitudes, the social nature of attitude change, and consequences of attitudes. The appealing illustration program offers b&w photos, advertisements, screenshots, summary charts, graphs, and comics. Other learning features include margin definitions, chapter summaries and exercises, critical thinking and discussion questions, and a glossary. This second edition reflects recent trends in the field, such as implicit attitude measures, and contains new chapters on social influence and resistance to persuasion.
