Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(6), 503–504. Reviews the book, The Human Bond: Introduction to Social Psychology by Elbert W. Stewart (1978). This is an introductory textbook filled with unexpected pleasures and frustrating disappointments. Unlike many of the standard textbooks to which we subject our students, this volume is not focused entirely on American contemporary life. Despite the successes of this book, several decisions made by the author and publisher are unfortunate. Another weakness in this volume is the curious decision to include class projects in the middle of the text. While this book does not inspire enthusiastic endorsement, it does have significant content features that recon mend it to social psychologists.
