The Third Edition retains the strengths of the first two editions: a clear and engaging writing style that is accessible to students but does not compromise rigor; research-based and comprehensive in coverage; superior pedagogy; many illustrative, engaging case examples and student-oriented applications; and integration of sociocultural material throughout, including attention to cultural diversity, gender and lifestyle. Multicultural material is highlighted in boxed features ("Focus on Diversity") and integrated within the text in sections on sociocultural perspectives The attention to issues of diversity in abnormal psychology is clearly consistent with the importance given to cultural sensitivity in the DSM-IV and the need to bring these important issues to the attention of the beginning student in abnormal psychology.From the Back Cover:
