Attitudes and Opinions

Buy
Notable advances resulting from new research findings, measurement approaches, widespread uses of the Internet, and increasingly sophisticated approaches to sampling and polling, have stimulated a new generation of attitude scholars. This extensively revised edition captures this excitement, while remaining grounded in scholarly research.

Attitudes and Opinions, 3/e maintains one of the main goals of the original edition--breadth of coverage. The book thoroughly reviews both implicit and explicit measures of attitudes, the structure and function of attitudes, the nature of public opinion and polling, attitude formation, communication of attitudes and opinions, and the relationship between attitudes and behaviors, as well as theories and research on attitude change. Over 2,000 references support the book's scientific integrity. The authors' second goal is to demonstrate the relevance of the topic to people's lives. Subsequently, the second part of the book examines many of the topics and research findings that are salient in the world today--political and international attitudes (including terrorism), voting behavior, racism and prejudice, sexism and gender roles, and environmental attitudes.

This thoroughly revised new edition features:
  • an entirely new chapter on implicit measures attitudes;
  • a new chapter on environmental attitudes;
  • updated opinion poll data throughout the book;
  • additional material on time trends in attitudes about many issues; and
  • expanded, updated sections on international attitudes reflecting the events of 9/11 and the subsequent invasions of Afghanistan and Iraq.
Attitudes and Opinions' broad and interdisciplinary perspective makes this an ideal text in courses on attitudes, public opinion, survey research, or persuasion, taught in a variety of departments including psychology, communication, marketing, sociology, and political science.

This text broadly covers the study of attitudes and opinions, relating the two to the processes of social perception and social cognition. Demonstrating the relevance of attitudes and opinions to people's lives and key concerns, the book stresses principles and research findings that are important to citizens today.

miRNA Regulation of the Translational Machinery (Progress in Molecular and Subcellular Biology)
miRNA Regulation of the Translational Machinery (Progress in Molecular and Subcellular Biology)

The silencing of gene expression by small interfering RNAs has been recognized for only a relatively short time, but this has transformed our understanding of both transcriptional and post-transcriptional gene regulatory mechanisms. Multiple pathways culminate in formation of an RNA-induced silencing complex (RISC) containing a member of the...

Data Streams: Algorithms and Applications (Foundations and Trends in Theoretical Computer Science)
Data stream algorithms as an active research agenda emerged only over the past few years, even though the concept of making few passes over the data for performing computations has been around since the early days of Automata Theory. The data stream agenda now pervades many branches of Computer Science including databases, networking, knowledge...

Electromagnetic Fields: Restrictions and Approximation
The subject of this book falls within the scope of three disciplines – the antennas theory, highfrequency electrodynamics and mathematical physics. There are problems in which these disciplines are fundamentally connected. They are the inverse problems of the high-frequency field theory, more precisely – the connection...
