Stanley Milgram is the most oft-cited social psychologist in textbooks. This collection of major experiments and essays is the first and only one that includes his famous obedience study (unabridged) and his posthumous essay on the "Cyrano effect." Edited by two of his famous students (Sabini and Silver), this brief, inexpensive paperback is an ideal primary source supplement for social psychology survey courses and advanced courses for critical thinking about methods of experimentation in social psychology.
