Synopsis

The International Handbook of Psychology by Kurt Pawlik

The International Handbook of Psychology is an authoritative resource covering all the main areas of psychological science and written by an outstanding set of authors from around the world. The 31 chapters cover not only scientific but also applied cross-disciplinary aspects. Supervised by an International Editorial Advisory Board (IEAB) of 13 eminent psychologists and edited by Professors Kurt Pawlik and Mark R Rosenzweig, it is being published under the auspices of the International Union of Psychological Science (IUPsyS) by SAGE Publications Ltd in London. The International Handbook of Psychology will be invaluable to advanced undergraduates, graduate students and academics in psychology, and will also be of interest to students of education, sociology, political science, humanities, philosophy, informatics, cognitive sciences, neuroscience, legal sciences and criminology, and will serve as a general resource reference text, written at a level comparable to Scientific American. `This impressive volume covers a tremendous amount of work. It is well organized: authors have generally kept to a standard brief. It is also truly international both in authorship and the origin of the work referenced. This will provide a very useful reference book for undergraduate and post-graduate students' - British Journal of Educational Psychology

Reviews

The Handbook should be a valuable and sought-after tool for the acquisition of psychological knowledge and research. . . . It is highly recommended for acquisition by libraries in universities on a worldwide scale, especially those that offer degree programs in the discipline. The Handbook is well organized and informative. It can well serve both as a text and a resource book for students of psychology and the social sciences as well as for individuals in the general public, internationally, who are curious about psychological science. * Contemporary Psychology * `This is a fine text that will apeal to all of us, who in the words of our esteemed BPS President, Tommy MacKay see ourselves as first a psychologist - 90 per cent; second a child psychologist working in the field of education - 10 per cent . It's good to be reminded of the big picture.. this provides a useful resource for a Service library' - Educational Psychology in Scotland

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
