✏Social Psychology and Evaluation Book Summary : This compelling work brings together leading social psychologists and evaluators to explore the intersection of these two fields and how their theory, practices, and research findings can enhance each other. An ideal professional reference or student text, the book examines how social psychological knowledge can serve as the basis for theory-driven evaluation; facilitate more effective partnerships with stakeholders and policy makers; and help evaluators ask more effective questions about behavior. Also identified are ways in which real-world evaluation findings can identify gaps in social psychological theory and test and improve the validity of social psychological findings; for example, in the areas of cooperation, competition, and intergroup relations. The volume includes a useful glossary of both fields' terms and offers practical suggestions for fostering cross-fertilization in research, graduate training, and employment opportunities. Each tightly edited chapter features an introduction and concluding reflection/discussion questions from the editors.

✏Social Psychology and Social Change in Nigeria Book Summary : Governments in the developing nations of Africa invest much of their peoples’ scarce resources in social development programs, often without much evaluation or any knowledge of the potential outcomes. Written by a social psychology consultant, Denis Ugwuegbu, Social Psychology and Social Development in Nigeria puts forth a calm, expert, and systematic evaluation of some government policies under military dictators in Nigeria. The programs and policies studied range from government efforts to create a homogenous multicultural cohesive national unity in Nigeria to the nation’s perception of the Nigeria police and military coups. Social Psychology can empower a developing nation to participate in social policy democracy. Important insights, conclusions, and recommendations for action are offered along with advocacy for social development program and policy evaluation for practitioners and social scientists interested in research about national development. Social Psychology and Social Change in Nigeria is the first book of its kind to be written in Africa, for Africa and other developing nations with clarity and enough detail to make it accessible to an audience beyond professional social scientists.
