From the Publisher:

Designed for non-majors and majors alike, this lively, highly interactive introduction to psychology provides a broad exploration of classic and contemporary research on current and emerging topics in all areas of the field and provides an abundance of opportunities for students to see first hand how psychological concepts apply to a wide range of real-life, everyday situations. It offers strong treatment of the "how's" and "why's" of research methods, with frequent examination throughout the book of the validity of conclusions drawn from research. Also discusses important topics within historical context -- e.g., the discovery and function of neurons, the development of phobias, and the concept of stress. An exceptionally strong supplements package including several interactive, multimedia resources ensures student's total immersion in the material.

From the Back Cover:

This collection of articles provides Canadian views, empirical discussion, and policy-relevant analysis written especially for subjects on Canadian foreign, security or defense polity.
