Psychology plays an increasingly important role in today's society. Its influence can be seen all around us - be it in the home, the workplace, the school or our private lives. A uniquely diverse discipline, it ranges from social psychology to biological aspects of behaviour, and from basic research to the applied professions. This Companion Encyclopedia covers all these main branches of psychological research and professional practice.

The thematic arrangement is the result of the Editor's extensive research into syllabi, from which he distilled the 13 most frequently taught units. Students can consult and be referred to sections relating to their lecture programme, and can find lucid definitions of frequently used terms in the Glossary. Headings and sub-headings are clearly highlighted at the beginning of each chapter - ideal for quick reference.

* Provides authoritative and in-depth reference material on all major branches of psychological research and professional practice
* Contributors include many of the world's most eminent psychologists
* Written in a lively style without assuming previous knowledge of the subject
* Structured according to the core topics appearing most often as discrete modules in contemporary psychology courses
* Detailed bibliographies, further reading sections, exhaustive index and glossary of technical terms
* Containing 165 supporting illustrations

About the Author:

Andrew M. Colman is a Reader in Psychology at the University of Leicester, UK and is a qualified psychologist.

His previous books include Facts, Fallacies and Frauds in Psychology and What is Psychology? The Inside Story. He is founder and former editor of the journal Current Psychology: Research and Reviews and has contributed over 100 articles to prestigious journals such as the British Journal of Psychology, Criminal Law Review and American Psychologist.

He served for several years as Honorary Information Secretary of the British Psychological Society, and late as registrar and Chief Examiner for the society's qualifying examination.

From Library Journal:

Not encyclopedic in format, but arranged thematically, this book offers an outstanding collection of essays on psychology. Each of the 13 sections comprising the two volumes focuses on a single area, including cognition, learning, social and abnormal psychology, and research methodology. A brief introduction begins each section while individual chapters discuss and exemplify the topic. In addition, drawings help clarify selected concepts. Chapters conclude with lists for further reading and reference. The contributors, who include Rupert Brown, Connie Cahill, H.J. Eysenek, and Wolfgang Stroebe writing on topics like sleep and dreaming, memory, and hunger and appetite, are given brief contributor biographies at the beginning of the book. This work's serious presentation is geared toward a scholarly audience. Highly recommended for collections serving teachers, professionals, researchers, and graduate students.
