Human behavior is an endlessly fascinating subject, and psychology is the science dedicated to understanding the basics of human behavior and mental processes. The brand-new Student Handbook to Psychology set helps students learn more about such concepts as perception, cognition, attention, emotion, motivation, personality, relationships, and much more. In seven full-color volumes, readers are given a comprehensive survey of psychology—from its earliest scholars and practitioners to the development of its various methods and theories and up to the most recent research of the 21st century. 

Written in engaging and accessible prose by experts in the field, and enhanced with fascinating boxed features and a glossary in each volume, this set provides a ready reference for students and researchers interested in this popular field of study.

Volumes include:

  • History, Perspectives and Applications 
  • Methods and Measurements
  • Brain and Mind
  • Learning and Thinking
  • Developmental Psychology
  • Personality and Abnormal Psychology
  • Social Psychology.
