Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-Titles in this authoritative set include History of Psychology, The Brain and the Mind, Thinking and Knowing, Developmental Psychology, Social Psychology, and Abnormal Psychology. The entries vary in accessibility and length; there are 6-page introductory articles as well as 28-page essays on more substantive topics. They offer overviews of theories, terms, experiments, and history in an effective manner. There are no entries on individuals but the work of significant theorists is discussed within the articles. Research methods, cross-cultural information, and the relationship of psychology to other disciplines are clearly delineated. Sidebars present case studies, seminal experiments, and brief biographical profiles. Quotes enhance each entry. Informative, captioned, color and black-and-white photographs, charts, maps, drawings, and reproductions abound. The heavy, glossy paper adds to the quality of the reproductions. A set glossary and bibliography are included in each volume. An attractive, useful acquisition for libraries fielding questions on the history and science of the discipline.-Janice C. Hayes, Middle Tennessee State University, Murfreesboro Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
