FEATURES

CONTEMPORARY PERSPECTIVES, NOT JUST CONTEMPORARY REFERENCES
Giving careful consideration to the field's historical foundations, Psychology: Contemporary Perspectivesprovides a unique balance of traditional and contemporary perspectives. This approach invites students to develop a modern appraisal of psychology.

THE MOST CURRENT RESEARCH
The book covers the latest in evolutionary psychology and behavior genetics, ecological and evolutionary theories of learning, cross-cultural work in cognition, the latest neuroscience data (and its critiques), and endophenotype research in the genetic causes of schizophrenia.

CLEAR AND COMPELLING WRITING
Exceptionally well written, Psychology: Contemporary Perspectives uses stories to help students connect with the principles of psychology.

RICH PEDAGOGY
All running features are integrated into the main body of the text, helping to maintain the flow of the narrative--and the attention of students!

* "Freeze Frame" snapshots underscoring the theme of each chapter tell the compelling stories of real-life individuals.

* "Living Psychology" applies psychology to students' everyday lives, helping them understand the benefits of what they are studying.

* "Critical Thinking about Psychology" sections give students the tools they need in order to effectively and objectively interpret research.

* "At the Forefront" highlights new and influential research in the field.

CAREFULLY CRAFTED STUDY TOOLS
Placing an emphasis on "review, retrieve, and learn," Psychology: Contemporary Perspectives takes a "back-to-basics" approach to study tools.

* "In Summary" sections provide clear, concise chapter descriptions, offering students powerful tools for review.

* "Retrieve!" questions encourage students to test their knowledge of what they have just read. Each question includes the page numbers on which the relevant material was first presented, aiding in additional review and reinforcing learning.
