Appeared in Choice on 1991-11:
Zebrowitz takes an ecological approach to the study of social perception, emphasizing content as well as process. Target and perceiver characteristics that influence impression formation, perception of emotions, and causal attributions are discussed, as are methodological issues concerning accuracy in social perception. Remaining gaps in the literature are mentioned and the author suggests that more cross-cultural and developmental research be undertaken. Each chapter concludes with a list of further readings; the final chapter highlights current shortcomings in social perception research. Zebrowitz then describes her own theoretical position, which emphasizes both the internal and external determinants of social perception and how it can be applied to each of the major content areas in the field. Geared toward advanced undergraduates, but can be understood by students with minimal background in social psychology. An excellent overview of contemporary thinking in the area.-J. S. Croxton, SUNY College at Fredonia
