We are pleased to introduce Basic Psychology, one of the texts in the Prentice Hall Portfolio Editions series. This series offers concise, value-priced, paperback textbooks on a variety of subjects. In Basic Psychology, our goal is to present the core information about introductory psychology in a straightforward, no-frills format, using engaging language that the average student can easily comprehend. Basic Psychology's brevity and affordability offer a low-cost alternative to students, and flexibility to instructors who want to incorporate other materials or activities into the course.
In keeping with the goals of this text, we have streamlined the pedagogy in Basic Psychology to include a few key pedagogical features that will assist students in understanding the material:
INTEGRATED COVERAGE OF CULTURE AND DIVERSITYFor today's students and instructors of introductory psychology, diversity is more than simply an issue for discussion and debate; it is a daily reality. The challenge confronting any textbook author is to satisfy a heterogeneous audience without becoming trendy or unscientific. Over the last several years, the body of research examining issues of diversity has grown to significant levels. We have incorporated a wide range of material relating to diversity throughout Basic Psychologyóboth diversity within the North American population, and diversity across cultures worldwide. Some of this material includes: a section on "Human Diversity" in Chapter 1; information on culture and success in school in Chapter 7; coverage of women in the workforce in Chapter 9; a discussion of "Socioeconomic and Gender Differences in Coping with Stress" including the "tend-and-befriend" response among women in Chapter 11; recent material on cultural differences in abnormal behavior in Chapter 12; material on cultural differences in prevention programs, and recent statistics on gender differences in willingness to seek treatment in Chapter 13; a discussion of racism, recent research on cross-cultural differences in attribution, and information on cross-cultural replication of Milgram's research in Chapter 14.
