An interesting, but advanced textbook. If the students don't have a good background in Group Dynamics/Group Processes (e.g. all that is covered in Don Forsyth's text), they will probably not enjoy this text.
This is an excellent book covering all aspects of small group work theory. The section on power and status are very useful for the programme learners to undertake extended reading.
It is a very good book that is generally recommended for students to use as it covers a number of relevant issues.
The main attraction was the multi-disciplinary prospectives on groups. The students loved the book, and so do I! This is for a doctoral class, and it is rarely that I find textbooks targeted for the doctoral population. This one is perfect!
This is a good book for extra reading. Thus, I have suggested to the librarian to purchase it.
This title is also available on SAGE Knowledge, the ultimate social sciences online library. If your library doesn’t have access, ask your librarian to start a trial.
