Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(5), 439. Reviews the book, Contemporary psychology and effective behavior. 4th ed by James C. Coleman (see record 1980-51430-000). This text devotes 16 chapters to the psychology of human adjustment, covering everything from values to the decline of the puritan work ethic. Each chapter includes a topical outline, occasional inserts called “Insight,” and a balanced selection of illustrations ranging from adequate to excellent, and concludes with a “Summary and a Look Ahead.” The newest edition emphasizes the current literature and findings, but anchors these effectively in the theory and perspectives of the discipline.
