Basic Psychology was designed as a more accessible edition of its parent text, Psychology.Over the course of four editions, Basic Psychology has developed a distinct personality and a following all its own. The addition of Daniel Reisberg and Alan Fridlund to the Gleitman team signals a commitment to meeting the demands of a changing field. While preserving the clear writing and thoughtful pedagogy that distinguished the book in earlier editions, the Fifth Edition provides cutting-edge coverage of new developments in psychology.
