Editorial Reviews

A single-authored introductory textbook that distinguishes itself from the many packaged and overly simple texts in this category. Westen combines his teaching and clinical experience to translate a personable lecture style into an engaging yet rigorous text. The focus is on both the biological basis of psychology and the role of culture in shaping basic psychological processes; Westen's background in anthropology and sociology informs his focus on culture (cross- cultural material is not simply tacked on). Illustrations are well- chosen and well-integrated with the text. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
