 SPSSI Book Series: 
Contemporary Social Issues

Mission Statement: Since its founding, the Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues has addressed the social issues of the times. Central to these efforts has been the Lewinian tradition of action-oriented research, in which psychological theories and methods guide research and action addressed to important societal problems. The SPSSI series on “Contemporary Social Issues” is a series of authored or edited works addressed to contemporary social issues. Grounded in their authors’ programs of research, works in this series focus on areas of psychological inquiry on research relevant to social issues facing individuals, groups, communities, and/or society at large, with each volume written to speak to scholars, students, practitioners, and policy-makers. The series consists of 1-5 authored or edited works per year on contemporary topics related to social issues, with each work between 70,000-80,000 words (approximately 220 printed and bound pages). SPSSI will serve as the General Editor, Dan Perlman as the Series Editor, and Wiley Blackwell as the Publisher of the series on “Contemporary Social Issues”.
