Nay, so alien to himself do they appear that, having breathed for a few months or a few weeks the air of this region, he begins to look upon them as a troublesome and dangerous species of wild beast, and, if expedient, he could shoot them with as little compunction as they themselves would experience after performing the same office upon him.
This timely and applied textbook brings together leading scientists to illustrate how key theories and concepts in social psychology help to predict and explain behavior, and can be successfully applied to benefit social and practical problems. It focuses on robust theories and models known for their successful applications and covers a diverse range of settings—spanning classroom interventions, health behavior, financial decision making, climate change and much more. Each chapter comprises of a theoretical section to define the key concepts and summarize the theory, providing evidence for its reliability and limitations from basic research, as well as an application section that summarizes research in an applied context and provides details about a particular study including the respective application setting.
Persuasion: the theory and practice of manipulative communication,
Since the time of their introduction, optical tweezers OTs have grown to be a powerful tool in the hands of biologists. OTs use highly focused laser light to guide, manipulate, or sort target objects, typically in the nanoscale to microscale range. OTs have been particularly useful in making quantitative measurements of forces acting in cellular systems; they can reach inside living cells and be used to study the mechanical properties of the fluids and structures that they contain. As all the measurements are conducted without physically contacting the system under study, they also avoid complications related to contamination and tissue damage. From the manipulation of fluorescent nanodiamonds to chromosomes, cells, and free-swimming bacteria, OTs have now been extended to challenging biological systems such as the vestibular system in zebrafish. Here, we will give an overview of OTs, the complications that arise in carrying out OTs in vivo , and specific OT methods that have been used to address a range of otherwise inaccessible biological questions.
Social Psychology in Action
The sub-title of this collection is misleading since no reader will learn about the practice of manipulation. The volume collects a series of papers originally conceived and delivered, bar one, for workshop presentation concerning theories of manipulation. With this origin, it is not surprising that the discussion is variable in quality and scattered in its focus. Manipulation is a good topic for philosophical discussion yet not much discussed. Not quite coercion, manipulation raises interesting questions regarding freedom, autonomy and limits for how one can move others to action or belief. Unfortunately, the philosophical interest of manipulation is not presented well in an unusually poor introduction.

In all groups -- from couples to nation-states -- people influence one another. Much of this influence is benign, for example giving advice to friends or serving as role models for our children and students. Some forms of influence, however, are clearly morally suspect, such as threats of violence and blackmail. A great deal of attention has been paid to one form of morally suspect influence, namely coercion. Less attention has been paid to what might be a more pervasive form of influence: manipulation.
