Although widely taught to undergraduates, teachers, managers and adult students, practical work and demonstrations in social psychology were often found very difficult to carry out satisfactorily. Originally published in 1962, this book presented for the first time a series of experiments which would work in a classroom setting: some are modified versions of classical experiments, others were new. Several experiments are presented, together with discussion of their background and implications, in each of a number of central areas of social psychology.

Each topic has been covered by a different author, who has carried out research in the area in question, and is experienced in demonstrating the main experimental facts in practical class work. The editors have written a challenging introduction, in which some of the basic issues involved in experimental work in social behaviour are raised.
