ABOUT THE BOOK

This new edition has successfully captured the mystery of human personality and the efforts of psychologists to unravel it. Cervone enhances the coverage of contemporary researching findings in the field. The chapters have been streamlined to present more balanced coverage of the competing theories. It integrates theory and research to emphasize how theory and research inform one another. Psychologists will also find that rich case material is used to clearly illustrate the theory.

Book News Annotation:

Though revised often and deeply over the past 40 years, say Cervone (U. of Illinois-Chicago) and Pervin (emeritus, Rutgers U.), the psychology textbook still presents the major theoretical perspectives on personality, integrates theory with research and case material, and provides the basis for comparing the theories. Among the topics are developing everyday observations into systematic theories, Freud's psychoanalytic theory of personality, Carl Roger's phenomenological person-centered theory, trait theories and the five-factor model, biological foundations of personality, George A. Kelly's personal construct theory, the social-cognitive theory of Bandura and Mischel, personality in such contexts as interpersonal relations and culture, and assessing personality theory and research.

Synopsis:

Forty years since its original publication, Personality: Theory and Research, 11th edition, still maintains the overall goals of the original text, despite a complete update in content to keep with the changes that have occurred in the field. The text aims to present the major theoretical perspectives on personality through contemporary research and case studies while highlighting how theory and research inform one another. Rich in case material, the 11th edition upholds the texts long-standing tradition of presenting the subject matter objectively and without bias, encouraging readers to observe the evidence and come to their own conclusions.
