Aggression is a complex social behaviour with multiple causes. In psychology, as well as other social and behavioural sciences, aggression refers to behaviour between members of the same species that is intended to cause pain or harm. This book gathers the research from around the world in this field.
Introducing the complexities of psychology's origins, the material in this book is presented with support for students learning the context of historical, cultural, social, and philosophical developments. It is useful for courses in History, Systems of Psychology, and History of Science or Philosophy.
Focuses on the nature and scope of psychology as a science with an emphasis on how science works, and guidance on how to engage students in practical scientific research activities. This book includes coverage of six areas in psychology: human memory, early social development, research methods, stress, social influence and abnormality.
Basic Statistics for Psychologists combines clear explanations of statistical concepts and tests with a guide to using SPSS, providing an invaluable resource for psychology students. Highly readable and with innovative learning features throughout, this book offers a comprehensive introduction to statistics and their use in social science
I find each and every chapter excellent and from a teaching point of view, brilliant. The way in which the history of the myths is presented up to the critical but balanced discussion of each myth, is a great achievement.
