Abstract:

"Offering the most comprehensive treatment of groups available, Group Dynamics, 6th Edition, International Edition combines an emphasis on research, empirical studies supporting theoretical understanding of groups, and extended case studies to illustrate the application of concepts to actual groups. This best-selling book builds each chapter around a real-life case, drawing on examples from a range of disciplines including psychology, law, education, sociology, and political science. Tightly weaving concepts and familiar ideas together, the text takes readers beyond simple exposure to basic principles and research findings to a deeper understanding of each topic."--Publisher.
