The close collaboration of master author Charles G. Morris with Al Maisto keeps Psychology: An Introduction at the cutting edge of the discipline through the use of relevant material and recent examples. Classic studies are carefully integrated with the most up-to-date research to provide readers with an accurate and current view of the field.
