monographs that will appeal to undergraduates, and Triandis (317) has provided a more gen­ eral introduction to attitude and attitude change that will also be useful in u n d ergraduate teaching. Some w ha t more specialized b u t equally valuable are Cronkhite's (68) book on persuasive speech, Scheibe's (263) analysis of beliefs and values, and Greenwald, Brock & Ostrom's (111) collection of orig­ inal theoretical contributions.3 This review will concentrate on theoretical and methodological problems at the expense of a more detailed survey of research findings. Our decision to proceed in this manner was guided not only by our conviction that these problems deserved the attention of attitude researchers, but also by our knowledge that a number of reviews covering the content of the area were available. The recent edition of the Handbook of Social Psychology (181) contains a number of excellent chapters relevant to the attitude area, as do the two additional volumes in the Berkowitz series of Advances in Experi­ mental Social Psychology (32).
