This article introduces several broad issues concerning relations between expectations and social problems, issues that serve as the main themes of this volume. A myriad of social problems involve expectancies, and some expectancies create social problems whereas other expectancies reflect social problems. Expectancies may be either interpersonal (one person's expectations regarding another person) or intrapersonal (individuals' expectations for themselves). The paper concludes with an overview of the articles in this issue and the social problems they address. 1990 The Society for the Psychological Study of Social Issues
