Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A dictionary which presents a baseline set of key concepts for examining the laws, theories, principles, effects, doctrines, and hypotheses in psychology. Roeckelein (psychology, Mesa Community College in Arizona) provides accepted definitions of the generalized concepts as well as historical references and current citations concerning the concepts in psychology as reflected by the authoritative accounts in the literature. The entries vary considerably in length, from long ones on broad terms such as learning and personality to brief ones on specific theories and laws. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
