Abstract

Research on small groups ( 1 977 - 1 980) was reviewed for this series by McGrath & Kravitz (1982) . Here, we review work done since then. Rather 585 0066-4308/901020 1 -0585$02. 00 LEVINE & MORELAND than selecting a limited set of issues for detailed analysis, we decided to write a more general overview. This decision reflected our view that the field, though quite vigorous, is badly fragmented, as evidenced by the failure of researchers working on related problems to acknowledge one another's work. Ironically , this unfortunate situation is due to one of the strengths of the field, namely its multidisciplinary nature. People who study small groups tend to publish in (and read) different journals, depending on their disciplines. Much of the vitality of the field is thus invisible to those within it , not to mention those outside it .
