New to this edition
Readership: Social psychologists, and those in the affective sciences as well as sociologists.
Edited by Yair Amichai-Hamburger, Director, The Research Center for Internet Psychology, Israel
"The new edition presents a wide range of articles by distinguished scholars. Each article examines the relationship of individual personalities with other individuals and groups in different contexts. The common thread of each article is the impact of the internet on each context and their participants. The interaction between individuals and groups as well as the dissemination of information is accelerating geometrically. This book provides a snapshot of the positive and negative aspects of our present circumstance and an idea of our future in the contexts of leadership, persuasion, romance, and decision making as impacted by the internet.
This book is unique in that it provides you an opportunity to remain abreast with our rapidly evolving lives." - Amazon Customer Reviews, March 2013
