In this book are gathered together Jerome Bruner’s major papers on the "psychology of knowing". Spanning virtually the entire range of knowledge acquired from infancy onwards, they present the complete spectrum of his research, theories, and ideas concerning perception, thought, skills (of the eye, hand, ear, tongue and mind) developed in childhood, mental representation and cognition, the process of discovery and the nature and techniques of education. This will be invaluable not only for students of psychology, but also for a wider readership including teachers, doctors, biologists, sociologists and all who are interested in child development.

Jerome Bruner has written many seminal works on education and cognitive studies, including "The Culture of Education" (1996), "Acts of Meaning" (1990), "On Knowing: Essays for the Left Hand" (1962), and "The Process of Education" (1961). Through his distinguished career, first as professor of psychology at Harvard and then as Watts Professor at Oxford, he has been at the forefront of what became, in the 1960s, the much-heralded Cognitive Revolution that forever changed the way psychologists study the mind. During the Kennedy and Johnson administrations, he served on the president's Science and Advisory Committee, and he has since helped to found Head Start. Currently, he lives in his native New York City with his wife, Carol Fleisher Feldman, and teaches at NYU Law School.
In North Korea’s Military-Diplomatic Campaigns, 1966-2008, Dr. Narushige Michishita provides a unique, refreshing and extremely well researched study of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea’s (DPRK) idiosyncratic military/political strategies and doctrines. . . . Dr. Michishita’s book is highly recommended to both the serious student of the DPRK and the general reader interested in gaining a better understanding of this dangerous and volatile nation. -Joseph S. Bermudez, Jr., author of The Armed Forces of North Korea and A History of Ballistic Missile Development in the DPRK
Michishita dissects four decades of North Korean military adventurism to demonstrate Pyongyang’s consistent and calculated use of military tools to advance strategic objectives vis-à-vis its adversaries. Rather than being irrational or unpredictable, North Korea emerges in these pages as a proactive but no less dangerous actor in the international system. Michishita’s scholarship is compelling and important.- Michael J. Green, Former Special Assistant to the President for National Security Affairs and Senior Director for Asia, National Security Council
It is an excellent, comprehensive and important addition to the literature on North Korean policies and actions. It sheds new light on many disputed episodes, to the benefit of scholars, journalists and interested citizens. - Don Oberdorfer, a Distinguished Journalist in Residence at Johns Hopkins University’s Nitze School of Advanced International Studies and the author of The Two Koreas: A Contemporary History
Thinking that a second Korean War is all but improbable, we are often guilty of downplaying North Korea’s military activities. Fortunately, Narushige Michishita has undertaken a comprehensive study of Pyongyang’s military-diplomatic campaigns, providing the analysis and linkage to North Korea’s overall foreign policy objectives. The case studies he cites are rich with detail and provide the critical element in understanding what otherwise might appear as random, unconnected acts of military adventurism by Pyongyang. Michishita’s North Korea’s Military-Diplomatic Campaigns, 1966-2008 is a valuable resource negotiators and scholars alike should have. - Charles L. (Jack) Pritchard, former ambassador and special envoy for negotiations with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the author of Failed Diplomacy: The Tragic Story of How North Korea Got the Bomb
