This classic, comprehensive, and scholarly text captures the dynamic nature of contemporary psychology. Controversial issues are discussed in point/counterpoint essays in "Contemporary Voices in Psychology" boxes. Research is applied to real world problems in "Frontiers of Psychological Research" boxes. A biological orientation, a trend which is changing the way psychological topics are viewed, is exemplified by integrated bio-evolutionary research and coverage.
