New York: John Wiley, 1959. Second Printing. Hardcover. Cloth in dust jacket, very good, light wear, SIGNED by Heider on flyleaf. Signed copies are very rare. 322 pp. The author was an Australian psychologist. Wikipedia: "In 1958, at the University of Kansas, Heider published his most famous work, which remains his most significant contribution to the field of social psychology. 'The Psychology of Interpersonal Relations' was written in collaboration with the uncredited Beatrice Wright, a founder of rehabilitation psychology. Wright was available to collaborate because the University of Kansas's nepotism rules prohibited her from a position at the University (her husband, Erik Wright, was a professor), and the Ford Foundation gave Heider funds and assistance to complete the project. (Wright is credited only in the Foreword; she later went on to become an endowed professor of psychology at the University of Kansas). In his book, Heider presented a wide-ranging analysis of the conceptual framework and the psychological processes that undergird human social perception. 'The Psychology of Interpersonal Relations' pioneered attribution theory. A giant of social psychology, Heider had few students, but his book on social perception had many readers, and its impact continues into the 21st Century, having been cited over 26,000 times. Heider introduced two theories that correspond to his two articles from 1944: attribution theory and cognitive balance. 'The Psychology of Interpersonal Relations' illuminates a sophisticated approach toward naive or common-sense psychology." Very good / very good. Item #H24898
