In The Press

Praise for the first edition of Psychology in Organizations:

"A novel, yet timely, application of the social identity approach to the organizational domain simultaneously integrating the existing research and providing a model for theoretical and practical progress within the discipline.... All in all, an entertaining and groundbreaking book that serves a multitude of purposes across a wide range of disciplines. I can only hope that it becomes required reading"

Psychology in Society

"An excellent overview of what organizations are all about….. A truly outstanding explanation [of] Social Identity Theory and Self-Categorization Theory and[their] links to organizational behaviour…. The book shows us in an elegant way that social psychologists have the potential to make a big impact on the organizational field…. Very useful and informative reading…. A beautiful example of integration"

European Bulletin of Social Psychology

"The principal merit of Haslam's book is to present the first extensive overview of the predictors, moderators and consequences of social identification in organizations. There is no comparable outline of the theory.... We like this book and we believe that it is needed"
