About the Book

The social sciences are becoming increasingly multidisciplinary. Knowing only one perspective isn't enough. Researchers need to be able to interact with social scientists of different backgrounds everyday, and they all need to be able to understand what each other is saying. This book brings together, for the first time, social science research from all major fields to analyze the social behaviors of everyday life. This volume is invaluable for:

  • anyone wanting to understand their social behavior in a way that is not restricted to one discipline and its jargon
  • students doing introductory courses in social sciences (whether in psychology, sociology, social anthropology or geography)
  • students doing other courses that involve working a lot with people (whether in management and business, social ecology, social work, counseling, communication, medicine, law, leisure studies, or nursing studies)
  • distance-education students
  • an informed general audience interested in social behavior
  • small colleges and universities with few social science faculty

This book distills the most important points needed to understand how social behavior emerges from its contexts, and how the different approaches link together.
