Choice Review

Psychology, a rich and complex field, continues to evolve into various specialized subdisciplines whose research methods become more focused as topics become more refined. This bibliography intends to cite significant material from the entire field of pure and applied psychology. The bibliography's chapters correspond to the sections found in many introductory psychology texts. Included as major subdisciplines are biological psychology, sensation and perception, emotion, motivation, learning, cognition, consciousness, memory, language, developmental and social psychology, assessment, personality, stress, psychopathology, and psychotherapy. Entries are annotated and include books, chapters of books, and journal articles. The level of comprehension ranges from popular to scholarly research. Most entries are current (1970s through early 1990s), but major pioneering works are also included. Most entries will be found in college libraries and many in public libraries, attesting to public interest in the field. Recommended for college, university, and public libraries. A. E.
