In a new focus for this 6th edition, the emphasis is on how these classic and contemporary studies relate. From the differences and similarities between them you'll understand not just the studies themselves, but develop the study skills you need to write about Psychology in exams and essays. The aim is to help you understand how specific research and issues fit into the science of Psychology as a whole, and where that science is going.

About The Author

Richard Gross holds degrees in Psychology & Philosophy and the Sociology of Education & Mass Communications. Following a career in teaching, the runaway success of his first book, Psychology: The Science of Mind and Behaviour, made it possible for him to switch direction and focus on writing. His other best-selling books include Themes, Issues and Debates in Psychology, Key Studies in Psychology, AQA(A) Psychology for A2 and Psychology for Nurses and Allied Health Professionals. Richard speaks often at student and teacher conferences. In his spare time he is almost as devoted a Spurs fan as he is a husband and father of two daughters.
