Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1978, Vol 23(11), 809–811. Reviews the book, Human Memory: Basic Processes edited by Gordon Bower (1977). This book is a collection of seven papers, together with brief commentaries by the authors. The articles represent quite diverse approaches to the study of human memory; the reader is left wondering about the relation between them and about the kind of theorizing that the next 10 years will bring. The editor has, regrettably, let pass an excellent opportunity both to provide the student with the benefit of at least one person's idea of how the pieces fit together, and to engage in a little reckless speculation on what the future holds. This book can serve as either a textbook or a reference source. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
