Book News Annotation:

This is the fourth edition of a textbook for psychology students that addresses theory and research in a thoroughly engaging way and therefore has been one of the preferred references for this material for well over a decade. Funder and Ozer (U. of California, Riverside) have edited selections from such well-known contributors as B.F. Skinner, Abraham Maslow, Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung and Gloria Steinem, providing an unusually authoritative and varied overview of the field of psychology. Nearly one-third of the articles in the latest edition are completely new and reflect recent changes in biological, cognitive and cross-cultural approaches.
