Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(1), 65–66. Reviews the book, International Review of Industrial and Organizational Psychology, 1992. (Vol. 7) edited by Cary L. Cooper and Ivan T. Robertson (1992). The subjects of the chapters are clearly of current interest. Although they are of principal concern to industrial and organizational psychologists, several of them should have broader appeal. The latter include chapters on the meaning and use of biographical information and self-report measures, emotions in work and achievement, new directions in theory and research on work motivation, and women in management. Some of the chapters are essentially methodological, for example, those on research design, self-report measures, selection methods, and biographical data. There are chapters strongly oriented toward theory, especially the ones on motivation and emotions, whereas others emphasize practical matters, including those on selection, industrial relations, women in management, job transfer, and advanced manufacturing technology.
