Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(6), 485–490. Reviews the books Psychology for a Changing World. 2nd ed. by Idella M. Evans and Ron Murdoff (1978); Introductory Psychology. by Jonathan L. Freedman (1978); Experiencing Psychology. by Robert A. Goodale and Elaine Ruth Goldberg (see record 1979-22506-000); Fundamentals of Psychology. 2nd ed. by Audrey Haber and Richard P. Runyon (1978); Psychology: A Biographical Approach. by Malinda Jo Levin (see record 1979-20003-000); Psychology. 2nd ed. by Gardner Lindzey, Calvin S. Hall, and Richard F. Thompson (1978); Beginning Psychology. Rev. ed. by Perry London (1978); Psychology: The Science of Human Behavior. by D. L. Shepard (see record 1979-22509-000); Psychology. 3rd ed. by Robert E. Silverman (1977); Psychology: The Frontiers of Behavior. by Ronald E. Smith, Irwin G. Sarason, and Barbara R. Sarason (1978). This latest crop of introductory psychology textbooks displays mostly a repackaging of materials and organization proven acceptable in earlier editions. These books perhaps reflecting the economy of the present times–are packaged more homogeneously than recent introductory texts in size, use of color, and diversions.
