About this title

Synopsis:

Students of psychology have long faced the problem of tracking down original research articles, which are generally scattered in hard-to-find journals or presented in watered-down form in text books. In Introducing Psychological Research, Philip Banyard and Andrew Grayson have resolved this dilemma once and for all by providing detailed summaries and background information for sixty-three of the most influential studies in psychology.

The studies included in this remarkable reference illustrate the breadth of psychological research covering the areas of biological psychology, comparative psychology, social psychology, human diversity, developmental psychology, cognitive psychology, and health psychology. Among the ground- breaking trials highlighted are Piaget's cognitive approach; the jigsaw technique; the prison simulation; the Robbers' Cave; and the Minimal Group Studies. Contributors to this collection include Stanley Milgram, Philip Zimbardo, Henry Tajfel, B. F. Skinner, Niko Tinbergen, Sandra Bem, Carol Gilligan, Sigmund Freud, and Albert Bandura.

From the Back Cover:

Most important psychological research is presented in the form of research papers. Students of psychology have long faced the problem of tracking down original research articles, which are generally scattered in hard-to-find journals (where they are usually rendered in tedious academic fashion) or presented in watered-down form in textbooks. In Introducing Psychological Research, Philip Banyard and Andrew Grayson have resolved this dilemma once and for all by providing detailed summaries and background information for sixty-four of the most influential studies in psychology. The collection includes pioneering work by Stanley Milgram, Philip Zimbardo, Henry Tajfel, B. F. Skinner, Niko Tinbergen, Sandra Bem, Carol Gilligan, Sigmund Freud, Albert Bandura, and many others. Among the ground-breaking trials highlighted are Piaget's cognitive approach, the jigsaw technique, the prison simulation, the Robber's Cave, and the Minimal Group Studies.

Store Description

Tiber Books is an internet merchant with over 35 years of bookselling experience -- we've been offering our holdings online for nearly 20 years now. The majority of our inventory is scholarly non-fiction in both the sciences and the humanities, but we also carry an increasing selection of additional material in Americana, Art, History of Science and Technology, Regional U.S. History, Religion, and many other subjects. You can search our inventory by author and/or title. However, we also understand the need to browse by subject matter, and therefore make extensive use of Keywords in listing each of our books. You should have good results if you experiment with Keyword searches of our inventory. We also include a book's ISBN (if it has one), so if you'd like to search by ISBN, please use ABE's Advanced Search menu -- omit the dashes from the number when searching by ISBN. Enjoy browsing!
