This text provides summaries of 30 key studies that have shaped the course of Psychology. In a new focus for this 6th edition, the emphasis is on how classic theories relate to the more contemporary studies.
From the differences and similarities between them, your students will understand not just the studies themselves, but develop the study skills they’ll need to write about Psychology for assessment. Throughout, there are links to further studies, and wider debates and topics in Psychology. The aim is to help students understand how specific research and issues fit into the science of Psychology as a whole, and where that science is going.
