Each new edition of Ronald Comer's Abnormal Psychology has offered a fresh, comprehensive, and exciting presentation of the field, with objective, balanced coverage of a wide range of theories, studies, disorders, and treatments and all major models. Each new edition has also integrated the latest in pedagogical tools and state-of-the-art media for students and instructors. But even by Comer's standards, the new edition of Abnormal Psychology is an exceptional revision that captures the way the field has changed, the world has changed, and students have changed. The beautifully redesigned new edition features more than 2,000 new references from the years 2006-2009; hundreds of new photos, tables, and figures; and expanded coverage of multicultural issues, cognitive theories and treatments, and neuroscience topics. There has never been a text for the course so well-attuned to both the field of abnormal psychology and the wide range of students exploring it.
Anderson offers systematic and accessible presentation of the theoretical foundations of higher mental processes, with each important idea made concrete by specific examples and experiments. Focusing on knowledge representation as the central issue of cognition research, the book emphasizes an information processing approach to the field, but offers thorough coverage of the cognitive neuroscience approach as well (extensively updated for this edition). Reflecting the evolution of current research, the new Seventh Edition looks closely at the dramatic contributions of cognitive neuroscience to the understanding of cognitive functions. New coverage, new color insert, new pedagogy, and other content and format innovations, make this definitive new edition the most student-friendly yet.

The fifth edition features new coverage of developments in the study of positive psychology, Asperger's syndrome, sleep, consciousness and sex differences in the brain, as well as new artwork, chapter summaries and revised appendices.
Now in its ninth edition, Extraordinary Groups has had a most gratifying history.

This modules-based version of Myers' Psychology tenth edition breaks down the book's 16 chapters into 54 short modules. The condensed text allows students to better grasp and explore psychological concepts. It also makes for more flexibility in teaching, as cross-references to other chapters have been replaced with brief explanations.
This ninth edition of Psychology, Ninth Edition in Modules is so much improved over the previous work. Changes include: * some 1300 new research citations representing the most exciting and important new discoveries in our field, * organizational changes based on changes in the field (for example, the heavily revised Consciousness unit, which now follows The Biology of Mind unit and is titled Consciousness and the Two-Track Mind to reflect the dual processing and cognitive neuroscience themes), * fine-tuned writing with countless small and large improvements in the way concepts are presented, supported by the input and creative ideas of hundreds of contributing instructors and students, and from my longtime editors, * a sharp new art program and new pedagogy that teaches more effectively, * continually improving coverage of cultural and gender diversity issues, and * 44 fewer pages.
Thoroughly revised and updated, the second edition of this popular introductory psychology textbook introduces effective new teaching techniques as well as a range of new topics. Clear and engaging, the book provides a fundamental insight into how the mind works.

Written to promote critical thinking, captivate students, and satisfy the APA standards for high school psychology,Thinking About Psychology is an introduction to high school psychology unlike any other. In a convenient and effective modular format, it presents psychological science in a rigorous yet non-threatening way, with immediate examples that help high school students bridge the abstract to the familiar.
This book has three purposes. One purpose is to help students see that there are many options available to researchers for investigating behavior and that each method has a specific goal. The second purpose is to introduce students to qualitative research methods: interviewing, observation, and case studies. International Baccalaureate (IB) students taking the Higher Level (HL) course sit for Paper 3, a section of the exam about qualitative research. I weave headings throughout the chapters on qualitative research that correspond to Paper 3 learning outcomes. These IB learning outcomes are relevant for any psychology student. The third purpose is to teach students how to design a simple experiment and analyze the data. Students taking the International Baccalaureate and/or Advanced Placement exams in psychology will find what they need in this book. Research methods are probably the most difficult part of these exams. Introductory texts do not usually provide enough depth, while the typical college-level research methods books are too complicated, sometimes even for a college student's first experience with methodology.
Who Built America? Working People and the Nation's Economy, Politics, Culture, and Society, Vol. 1: From Conquest and Colonization through Reconstruction and the Great Uprising of 1877 (2nd edition)by Christopher Clark Nancy Hewitt
Who Built America? surveys the nation's past from the perspective of working men and women. Growing out of the effort to reinterpret American history from "the bottom up," Who Built America? not only documents the country's presidents, politics, and wars along with the life and values of the nation's elite but also focuses on the fundamental social and economic conflicts in our history, integrating the history of community, family, gender roles, race, and ethnicity.
The American dream champions individualism. But at what price? In the fully updated fifth edition of The Wilding of America, Charles Derber chronicles the latest incidents of "wilding"- acts of self-interested violence or greed that weaken the social fabric. Each chapter of the new edition has been thoroughly revised. New discussions include: an analysis of global corporate power in the wake of the 2008 economic crisis including an in-depth look at factory workers in both Guatemala and South China; an examination of the state of New Orleans in 2009; and a look at the impact of the Obama administration on wilding behavior. In addition, two all new chapters have been added to the Fifth Edition. Chapter 5,Subprime Capitalism, examines the 2008 Wall street collapse including sections on the rise and fall of Bernie Madoff, the workings of the housing market, and the role of the media before and after the collapse. Chapter 9,The Tragedy of the Commons, identifies how wilding behavior threatens the building blocks of a good society. This chapter specifically examines the effects of wilding on our public space, social infrastructure, and natural environment.
