Not since the landmark publication of Handbook of Human Intelligence in 1982 has the field of intelligence been more alive than it is today. Spurred by the new developments in a rapidly expanding field, Robert Sternberg has brought together a stellar list of contributors to provide a comprehensive, broad and deeply thematic review of intelligence that will be accessible to both scholar and student. Handbook of Intelligence is greatly expanded to cover areas such as animal and artificial intelligence, as well as human intelligence, fully reflecting important theoretical progress made since the early 1980s.

Editorial Reviews

Spurred by new developments, contributors offer a comprehensive and thematic review of theory, research, and measurement in the field of intelligence. Intended for use by both scholars and students, the 28 chapters collected here provide coverage of topics such as behavior- genetic models, evolutionary models, cognitive models, emotional intelligence, practical intelligence, and group differences. Specific attention is given to the measurement of intelligence, and the relationship of intelligence to information processing, education, and allied constructs like personality and wisdom. Contributors include experts in psychology, education, and computer science. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
