“While one of the oldest-studied topics in psychology, temperament remains one of its toughest nuts to crack. Rothbart leads the reader along a compelling personal and scientific journey during which the many factors that combine to make us unique individuals – biological, social, and developmental – are carefully assessed and elucidated. Rothbart’s writing style is clear and engaging. This book not only reflects the current state of the field, but also, I suspect, will shape its future.” - Mark H. Johnson, Professor and Director, Centre for Brain and Cognitive Development, Birkbeck College, University of London, UK

of temperament in the development of personality and psychopathology. Preeminent researcher Mary Rothbart synthesizes current knowledge on temperament’s basic dimensions; its interactions with biology, the social environment, and developmental processes; and influences on personality, behavior, and social adjustment across the lifespan. In a direct and readable style, Rothbart combines theory and research with everyday observations and clinical examples. She offers new insights on ‘difficult’ children and reviews intervention programs that address temperamental factors in childhood problems.

“This outstanding book from the foremost world expert on temperament offers a creative and authoritative synthesis. A broad range of interrelated topics are addressed, including the development and structure of temperament and personality; connections to competence, conscience, and psychopathology; meaning structures; biological and environmental contributions to temperament; and interventions. Rothbart clarifies the multiple levels of factors that contribute to the course of human development. There is something for all developmental scientists and students in this accessible and well-written book.” - Nancy Eisenberg, Regents’ Professor of Psychology, Arizona State University, USA

This book will be invaluable to developmental psychologists; personality/social psychologists; child clinical psychologists and other mental health practitioners. It will also serve as a text in graduate-level courses. Contents 1. Definition and Historical Roots. 2. The Structure of Temperament. 3. The Biology of Temperament. 4. Infancy. 5.

Black Fathers

An Invisible Presence in America Second Edition Michael E. Connor, Alliant International University, USA. Joseph White, University of California - Irvine, USA (Eds.) “An important contribution to the true image of black fathers in America. ... I enthusiastically endorse this book. … It provides a broad integrated perspective that combines relevant theory and research. … I am certain that it will be used in many college and university courses.” - Robert L. Williams, Washington University, USA “Connor and White capture eloquently the struggles, triumphs, hopes and dreams of African American men. ...

This book offers a broad, positive picture of African American fathers. Featuring case studies of African-descended fathers, this edited volume brings to life the achievements and challenges of being black fathers in America. Leading scholars and practitioners provide unique insight into this understudied population. Short-sighted social policies which do not encourage father involvement are critically examined and the value of father engagement is promoted. The problems associated with the absence of a father are also explored. The second edition features an increased emphasis on: • The historical issues confronting African-descended fathers

• The impact of health issues on Black fathers and their children • The need for therapeutic interventions to aid in the healing of fathers and their children • The impact of an Afrikan-centered fathering approach and the need for research which considers systemic problems confronting African American fathers • Community-focused models that provide new ideas for (re) connecting absent fathers • Learning tools including reflective questions and a conclusion in each chapter and more theory and research throughout the book. Part 1 provides a historical overview of African-descended fathers including their strengths and shortcomings over the years. Next, contributors share their personal stories including one from a communal father working with underserved youth and two others that highlight the impact of absent fathers. Then, the research on father-daughter relationships is examined, including the impact of father absence on daughters and on gender identity. This section concludes with a discussion of serving adolescents in the foster care system. Part 2 focuses on the importance of a two-parent home, communal fathering, and equalitarian households. Cultural implications and barriers to relationships are also explored. This section concludes with a discussion of the struggles Black men face with role definitions. The book concludes with a discussion of the impact of adoption and health issues on Black fathers and their children, and the need for more effective therapeutic interventions that include a perspective centered in Continued on next page.

Contemporary Neurobehavioral Syndromes

Gerald Goldstein, VA Pittsburgh Healthcare System, USA; Theresa M. Incagnoli, Private Practice, New York, USA; Antonio E. Puente, University of North Carolina, USA (Eds.)

http://goo.gl/Zviwq http://goo.gl/

“With Contemporary Neurobehavioral Syndromes, Goldstein, Incagnoli, and Puente provide clinicians and advanced trainees a window into the latest clinical conditions that are encountered by neuropsychologists and a refreshing view of conditions that clinicians have struggled to understand for decades. The editors, distinguished scholars and practitioners themselves, have assembled a group of contributing authors who are experts on the topics that they cover in the book. No other resource offers such thorough coverage of this collection of the newest and reconceptualized syndromes encountered in the practice of clinical neuropsychology.” - Shane Bush, Director, Long Island Neuropsychology, President, National Academy of Neuropsychology

and other specialists in neuroscience.” - Janna M. Glozman, Moscow State University, Russia

“Contemporary Neurobehavioral Syndromes is an edited work by three distinguished clinical neuropsychologists. The volume includes a state-of-the-art compilation of chapters on topics that should be of interest to both clinical neuropsychological practitioners and researchers. The chapters brings together in one source up-to-date information on syndromes and conditions that represent new challenges to the field; it is a must have reference work that would also complement graduate-level clinical neuropsychology courses.” - Robert J. McCaffrey, ABN, ABPdN, Professor of Psychology, University at Albany, State University of New York, USA

These major new and reconceptualized disorders are reviewed in this book with regard to their neurocognitive characteristics, causes, and outcome. Disorders covered include ADHD in adults, Lewy Body Dementia, autism, multiple chemical sensitivity, deployment syndromes found in veterans of the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan wars, effects of low birth weight, neurobehavioral respiratory disorders, PTSD, and comorbid disorders such as depression and brain injury.

“This book reflects the extensive development of contemporary neuropsychology. Many syndromes described in the book, like syndrome of ADHD in adults, toxicological disorders, chronic fatigue or ‘deployment’ syndromes are new for the neuropsychological literature, some others are reconceptualized. The volume is also very important for better understanding of neurobehavioral consequences in neurodevelopmental disorders, such as autism, preterm birth. This book will be a valuable resource for neuropsychologists

During the twentieth century, new neurobehavioral diseases appeared or were described for the first time. Exposure to certain toxins or noxious environments, for example, produced illnesses that did not exist before the twentieth century. In addition, established illnesses were reconceptualized with regard to their cause or neurobiological basis. Autism, for instance, was described for the first time during the twentieth century and may not have existed previously. Its cause was subsequently reconceptualized from a disorder related to inadequate parenting, to a brain disorder with possible genetic causes.

The expert reviews of these disorders give balanced coverage of the ongoing and often controversial research findings that continue to generate much professional and public interest. This volume provides an essential resource for researchers, instructors, and clinicians in the fields of neuropsychology, psychiatry, behavioral neurology, neuroscience, toxicology, as well as the informed general public concerned and affected by these disorders.

Early Development and Leadership Building the Next Generation of Leaders Susan E. Murphy, James Madison University, USA Rebecca J. Reichard, Claremont Graduate University, USA (Eds.) “This is an absolutely superb collection of beautifully written articles that belongs on the shelf of every leader and leadership scholar! Every parent who cares about raising a child to lead effectively should also read it from cover to cover.” - Jean Lipman-Blumen, Claremont Graduate University, USA, author of Connective Leadership and The Allure of Toxic Leaders “One of the interesting aspects of this edited volume is that it cuts across the developmental lifespan from early childhood through adolescence and into early adulthood. This will fill a valuable niche in better understanding leadership development from an entire developmental lifespan perspective.” - David Day, National University of Singapore “Anyone who wants to understand how early behaviors affect development and predict later behavior will be interested in this book, particularly professionals who design, implement and evaluate early life experiences. This book provides a unique and engaging look at how leadership develops early in life. It provides directions for understanding and designing formative leadership experiences from early childhood through college.” - Manuel London, SUNY Stonybrook, USA

Today we often look to our leaders in business, government, or the social sector, to make effective decisions in a complex world. Whether they are asked what steps to take to improve competitiveness in a global economy or to make tough ethical choices, well-trained leaders are critical to organizational effectiveness. Although we know much about leadership development for individuals after they take their first job, we know relatively little about their earlier experiences that contributed to their interest in leadership or subsequent effectiveness as leaders. This volume brings together

researchers who explore leadership at different points before individuals enter the workforce and asks important questions surrounding definitions of leadership behavior, necessary leader skills and age-related leader tasks, factors contributing to development of leader identity, and ways to improve the process of leader development. With contributions from well-known leadership researchers such as Robert Sternberg, Howard Gardner, Bruce Avolio, and Susan Komives, the volume shows research evidence for factors such as early childhood and youth experiences on leadership development, which have implications for the way we understand and train leadership in today’s organizations.

Elementary Statistics Tables Second Edition

Henry R. Neave Retired; formerly W. Edwards Deming Professor of Leadership and Management at Nottingham Trent University, UK This book, designed for students taking a basic introductory course in statistical analysis, is far more than just a book of tables. Each table is accompanied by a careful but concise explanation and useful worked examples. Requiring little mathematical background, Elementary Statistics Tables is thus not just a reference book but a positive and user-friendly teaching and learning aid. The new edition contains a new and comprehensive ‘teachyourself’ section on a simple but powerful approach, now well-known in parts of industry but less so in academia, to analysing and interpreting process data.

Elucidating the Neural Basis of the Self Bruce L. Miller (Ed.) University of California, San Francisco School of Medicine, USA A Special Issue of Neurocase

In this special issue of the journal Neurocase, leading neuroscientists and neurologists present comprehensive review papers and empirical studies on the topic of the neural basis of self-identification. From philosophical definitions to singlecase studies, the articles provide the reader with a broad view of the self in contemporary neuroscience. Review papers address the fundamental question of how to define and study the construct of identity. Methods in empirical studies range from socio-linguistic analyses to neuroimaging and diverse patient populations. As a whole, this issue provides a diverse sample of the myriad of ways in which identity is defined and studied in contemporary neuroscience.

Errors in Organizations

David A. Hofmann, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, USA Michael Frese, University of Lueneburg, Germany, and National University of Singapore (Eds.) SIOP Organizational Frontiers Series

“Attempts to manage human error in high-hazard domains were initially (and often still are) concentrated on what went on between the ears of the perpetrators. Remedial efforts focused on blaming, shaming, retraining and the like – but these measures largely isolated the people in question from the context in which the unsafe acts occurred. One of the most significant facts about errors is that the same kinds keep occurring in similar situations involving a wide range of different individuals. These recurrent ‘error traps’ make it clear that the origins of unsafe actions go well beyond the individual and encompass the workplace, the team dynamics and the organization as a whole – particularly its safety culture. This understanding has led to an increasing concern with the broader systemic issues. This collection is the latest and best of these systemic treatments, covering as it does the gamut of error research over the last forty years. Hofmann and Frese have brought together within a single volume a glittering assembly of top-rank contributors. Their chapters provide fresh insights as well as providing a coherent account of these diverse contexts. This book will be essential reading for all error researchers of whatever disciplinary persuasion for many years to come.” - James Reason, University of Manchester, UK

http://goo.gl/SlipT

“If you think that all errors are to be prevented, think again. While recognizing that preventing errors is often beneficial, Hofmann and Frese provide extensive support for the fact that the goal of the elimination of all errors in organizations is neither possible nor desirable. Their edited book, with internationally acclaimed chapter authors, convincingly demonstrates the superiority of focusing on error management rather than error prevention for individuals, teams, and organizations in settings varying from IT software development to top management teams. This book is indispensible for anyone interested in understanding

performance errors and harnessing them for attaining effective performance through training and the design of tasks, teams, organizations, or any other system.” - Daniel R. Ilgen, Michigan State University, USA “With the unexpected seemingly becoming a larger chunk of everyday organizational life and growing evidence showing that crises and accidents often start with the small stuff, we can understand why scholarly interest in errors has mushroomed. Thus, David Hofmann and Michael Frese’s Errors in Organizations could not be more important or timelier. This comprehensive volume includes essays by a renowned set of scholars who provide not only keen insight into the phenomenon, but also shrewd guidance about future research avenues.” - Kathleen M. Sutcliffe, University of Michigan, USA Despite the importance and prevalence of errors in organizations, there has been no attempt within the field of Industrial and Organizational Psychology to create a single source that summarizes what we know regarding errors in organizations and provides a focused effort toward identifying future directions of research. This volume answers that need and provides contributions by researchers who have conducted a considerable amount of research on errors occurring in the work context. Students, academics and practitioners in a wide range of disciplines, i.e., industrial organizational psychology, medicine, aviation, human factors and systems engineering, will find this book of interest.

“No other sensation and perception text offers a similar integrative overview of the issues general to all of the senses. I applaud the extensive detail used by the author in this brief text, and I believe that this treatment is a necessary one.” Matthew I. Isaak, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, USA

Assuming no prior knowledge, this book is an accessible and up-to-date overview of the processes of human sensation and perception. Presented in full color, it is an ideal introduction for pre-undergraduate and first year undergraduate students on courses in psychology, as well as neuroscience and biology.

“This book is direct, lucid and makes complicated ideas and concepts comprehensible. It packs a lot of information into a small space, and will be useful to students who need a quick, easy-to-use text on the senses.” - G. Neil Martin, Reader in Psychology, and Director, Human Olfaction Laboratory, University of Middlesex, UK

Contents

The study of sensation and perception looks at how we acquire, process, and interpret information about the outside world. By describing key ideas from first principles, this straightforward introduction provides easy access to the basic concepts in the subject, and incorporates the most recent advances with useful historical background. The text takes a uniquely integrative approach, highlighting fundamental findings that apply across all the senses – including vision, hearing, touch, pain, balance, smell and taste – rather than considering each sense in isolation. Several pedagogical features help students to engage with the material. ‘Key Term’ and ‘Key Concept’ boxes describe technical terms and concepts whilst ‘Question’ boxes relate the material to everyday questions about perception. Each chapter ends with suggestions for further reading, and the final chapter draws together the material from the previous chapters, summarizing the broad principles described, and outlining some major unresolved issues.

“The contributors to this book provide the most appropriate tribute to Don Shankweiler, one of the giants of our field – a description of the cumulative and continuing impact of his seminal ideas. In this volume, the reader gets what would be expected from this All Star list of contributors: a comprehensive treatment of our understanding of individual differences in the development of reading ability with particular emphasis on the phonological deficit hypothesis.” Keith Stanovich, University of Toronto, Canada, author of Progress in Understanding Reading and winner of the 2010 Grawemeyer Award in Education “These chapters provide a brilliant overview of the last decade of research in reading. In addition, each chapter also provides a solid overview of the research base that has led to the current insights. It is an excellent book precisely in the spirit of one of the most creative, knowledgeable and persistent minds in reading research.” - Carston Elbro, University of Copenhagen, Denmark

“This volume contains an excellent set of cutting-edge chapters on the interface between reading and language development. The contributors are truly an all-star cast. As well as covering the central role of phonological skills for reading development, work on broader oral language skills is also included. The coverage is broadened further by including recent work on genetic and neuroimaging studies. This is an excellent book, and a fitting tribute to the contribution made by Donald Shankweiler to the study of reading development and reading disorders.” - Charles Hulme, University of York, UK

Research into reading development and reading disabilities has been dominated by phonologically guided theories for several decades. In this volume, the authors of 11 chapters report on a wide array of current research topics, examining the scope, limits and implications of a phonological theory. The chapters are organized in four sections. The first concerns the nature of the relations between script and speech that make reading possible, considering how different theories of phonology may illuminate the implication of these relations for reading development and skill. The second set of chapters focuses on phonological factors in reading acquisition that pertain to early language development, effects of dialect, the role of instruction, and orthographic learning. The third section identifies factors beyond the phonological that may influence success in learning to read by examining cognitive limitations that are sometimes co-morbid with reading disabilities, contrasting the profiles of specific language impairment and dyslexia, and considering the impact of particular languages and orthographies on language acquisition. Finally, in the fourth section, behavioral-genetic and neurological methods are used to further develop explanations of reading differences and early literacy development. The volume is an essential resource for researchers interested in the cognitive foundations of reading and literacy, language and communication disorders, or psycholinguistics; and those working in reading disabilities, learning disabilities, special education, and the teaching of reading.

Five Ways of Doing Qualitative Analysis Phenomenological Psychology, Grounded Theory, Discourse Analysis, Narrative Research, and Intuitive Inquiry

Frederick J. Wertz, Fordham University, New York, USA; Kathy Charmaz, Sonoma State University, California, USA; Linda M. McMullen, University of Saskatchewan, Canada; Ruthellen Josselson, The Fielding Graduate University, California, USA; Rosemarie Anderson, Institute of Transpersonal Psychology, California, USA; Emalinda McSpadden, Fordham University, New York, USA “This text addresses one of the most frequently asked questions in qualitative analysis: what is the difference between phenomenology, grounded theory, discourse analysis, narrative research, and intuitive inquiry? Not only do the authors explain the theory that underlies each approach, but they also illustrate its application and the resultant findings, making the book a worthy text for a qualitative methods course. As an added bonus, the authors present the participant’s reaction to the results of the five different analyses and discuss the ethical implications in terms of letting the participant speak for herself, issues of confidentiality, and tensions around interpretation of data. I would definitely use this book in my advanced qualitative research course.” - Donna M. Mertens, Department of Educational Foundations and Research, Gallaudet University, USA

http://goo.gl/OauuC

“A powerful, richly nuanced, brilliantly innovative pedagogical intervention into the field of qualitative inquiry. This book is clearly written, grounded in case materials, and very accessible to students. The narrative is driven by the voices and insights of preeminent scholars, each an expert in one of five ways of doing qualitative analysis. This book represents the most innovative approach to date for teaching qualitative analysis. It will provide a starting place for the next generation of students who want to learn how to be well-grounded qualitative inquirers.” - Norman K. Denzin, College of Communications Scholar, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA This unique text provides a broad introduction to qualitative analysis together with concrete demonstrations and comparisons of five major approaches. Leading scholars

apply their respective analytic lenses to a narrative account and interview featuring ‘Teresa’, a young opera singer who experienced a career-changing illness. The resulting analyses vividly exemplify what each approach looks like in action. The researchers then probe the similarities and differences among their approaches; their distinctive purposes and strengths; the role, style, and subjectivity of the individual researcher; and the scientific and ethical complexities of conducting qualitative research. Also included are the research participant’s responses to each analysis of her experience. A narrative account from another research participant, ‘Gail’, can be used by readers to practice the kinds of analysis explored in the book. This book will be important reading for graduate students, instructors, and researchers in psychology, education, social work, family studies and human development, sociology, and nursing. It will also serve as a text in graduate-level qualitative analysis courses and as a supplement in graduate-level qualitative methods, PsyD research methods, and humanistic psychology courses and in phenomenological research seminars.

When the leading lights of any burgeoning new arena of inquiry are assembled to share their insight and understanding – as they are in this fascinating volume – students and scholars wise enough to drink from the well can be assured of being intellectually nourished. This book will afford graduate students and established academics a stateof-the-art understanding of the complex interplay of nature and nurture in shaping human behavior and development, along with implications for intervention and public policy.” - Jay Belsky, Robert M. and Natalie Reid Dorn Professor, Department of Human and Community Development, University of California, Davis, USA May 2011: 6x9: 286pp Hb: 978-1-60623-518-8: £33.95 developmentalpsychologyarena. com/9781606235188

http://goo.gl/E9uUy

“This volume is the definitive work on gene-environment interactions: their nature, underlying mechanisms, developmental and clinical implications, and ramifications for inequality and social policy. Chapters are by world experts, and the book is both authoritative and fascinating. Without hyperbole, I believe that each chapter is essential reading.” - Stephen Hinshaw, Professor and Chair, Department of Psychology, University of California, Berkeley, USA Bringing together foremost experts, this book reviews groundbreaking gene-environment research and explores implications for clinical practice, prevention, and public policy. Presented is cutting-edge work on the interplay of genetic factors and childhood experiences in the development of mental disorders such as depression, conduct disorder, and schizophrenia. Essential topics include what scientists currently know about ‘susceptibility genes’; the mechanisms

by which maltreatment and other stressors interact with biological susceptibilities across development; and factors that make certain children more resilient than others. Future directions for personalizing treatment and prevention efforts, thus making them more effective, are discussed. This book will be important reading for developmental and clinical psychology researchers, epidemiologists, and policymakers in the area of child and family health.

Modern Statistics for the Social and Behavioral Sciences A Practical Introduction

Rand Wilcox University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA Designed for a two-semester, introductory course for graduate students in the social sciences, this text introduces three major advances in the field: 1) sample size estimation needed to justify normality via the central limit theorem, 2) the impact of outliers and heavy-tailed distributions on power and our ability to obtain an accurate assessment of how groups differ and variables are related, and 3) the deleterious effects of heteroscedasticity on conventional ANOVA and regression methods. Focusing on conceptual issues rather than complex computational details, it also provides a library of R functions.

Morphology in Language Comprehension, Production and Acquisition

Raymond Bertram, Jukka Hyönä, University of Turku, Finland; Matti Laine, Åbo Akademi University, Finland (Eds.) A Special Issue of Language and Cognitive Processes

This special issue on morphological processing is based on the 6th Morphological Processing Conference (MOPROC), Turku, and contains thirteen articles. These articles investigate the role morphemes play in language comprehension, production and acquisition. Specific questions relate to the time course with which morphemes come available, what factors facilitate their use, the role of orthographic and semantic transparency in complex word processing and how morphology should be incorporated in models of word processing. The chapters in this volume provide a wealth of empirical results in several languages obtained with state-of-the-art experimental paradigms and will be an inspiration for further studies in morphological processing.

Multiteam Systems

An Organization Form for Dynamic and Complex Environments

Stephen J. Zaccaro, Michelle A. Marks, George Mason University, USA; Leslie A. DeChurch, University of Central Florida, USA (Eds.) Series in Organization and Management

“Organizations operate in turbulent, complex organizational environments, with new challenges seemingly appearing daily. The ‘Multiteam System’ has emerged as an important new organizational form designed to meet such challenges. This book serves as a critical landmark in research on the Multiteam System phenomena. It clearly defines what Multiteam Systems are, summarizes what is known, and identifies areas in need of future research. This book is your one-stop shopping source; it contains everything you always wanted to know about Multiteam Systems but were afraid to ask. Leading scholars provide clear descriptions of what Multiteam Systems are, identify and review the key issues that dominate this area of research, and provide practical advice about how to actually study Multiteam Systems. Scholars interested in groups or teams, or new organizational forms more broadly, would be well advised to read this book. It is destined to become a seminal reference for anyone who is interested in this emerging organizational form.” - Frederick P. Morgeson, Professor of Management and Valade Research Scholar, Michigan State University “This volume is well developed. The sections have a distinct focus that together create a complete and organized package. MTS (multi-team systems) is an emerging area of scholarship within the more general topic of team effectiveness . There is growing interest in this area, and in that sense the book has a potential to spur scholarship in this area.” - Steve Kozlowski, Editor, Journal of Applied Psychology, Michigan State University

http://goo.gl/xrl7O

“This book represents a quantum leap in our knowledge of multi-team systems (MTS) and their implications for organizational functioning. By deeply exploring both MTS internal processes and external dynamics, it lays

the foundation for how researchers will think about and practitioners design MTS’s. A must-have book for anyone interested in 21st century organizations.” - Laurie Weingart, Carnegie Bosch Professor of Organizational Behavior and Theory, Tepper School of Business, Carnegie Mellon University This book examines an emerging organizational form called multi-team systems (MTS). This type of aggregation is being increasingly adopted by organizations and agencies that need to respond to complex strategic problems. There has been increasing interest in MTSs over the last decade to the point where there is now a need to (a) describe these organizational forms more fully, (b) build conceptual frames that can guide research, and (c) begin developing tools to improve the study of MTSs. The purpose of this book is to respond to these needs. The book contains a series of chapters that expand prior conceptual frames of MTSs, defining in more detail the compositional and linkage attributes that characterize such units. The book also explores how such systems emerge and develop, as well as the methods for studying MTSs. The intent of the book is to establish and nurture a strong conceptual and methodological foundation that can guide research and practice with MTSs. Because the notion of MTSs cuts across multiple domains, this book will interest scholars in industrial/organizational psychology, organizational science, management and organizational theory, human factors, sociology, organization communications, and public administration.

Multivariate Generalized Linear Mixed Models Using R presents robust and methodologically sound models for analyzing large and complex data sets, enabling readers to answer increasingly complex research questions. The book applies the principles of modeling to longitudinal data from panel and related studies via the Sabre software package in R.

Focusing on these sophisticated data analysis techniques, this book explains the statistical theory and modeling involved in longitudinal studies. Many examples throughout the text illustrate the analysis of real-world data sets. Exercises, solutions, and other material are available on a supporting website.

A Unified Framework for a Broad Class of Models

Contents

The authors first discuss members of the family of generalized linear models, gradually adding complexity to the modeling framework by incorporating random effects. After reviewing the generalized linear model notation, they illustrate a range of random effects models, including three-level, multivariate, endpoint, event history, and state dependence models. They estimate the multivariate generalized linear mixed models (MGLMMs) using either standard or adaptive Gaussian quadrature. The authors also compare two-level fixed and random effects linear models. The appendices contain additional information on quadrature, model estimation, and endogenous variables, along with SabreR commands and examples.

Nadia Revisited

A Longitudinal Study of an Autistic Savant Lorna Selfe Clinical Practice, NHS, UK

“This book is essential reading for anyone striving to understand the beautiful otherness of the autistic mind. Lorna Selfe’s original description of Nadia and her wonderful drawings captivated readers everywhere. This follow-up volume not only updates Nadia’s story, but shows how the study and science of autism and of exceptional talent has developed.” - Francesca Happé, Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience, Institute of Psychiatry, King’s College London, UK “The case of Nadia is unique in the history of autism and in the history of outsider art. Nadia’s exuberantly prolific drawings in early childhood remain a mystery as well as an incredible achievement. This book sees the author who first discovered Nadia’s abilities unravel the story and consider the exceptional case history within the context of the latest research on autism and talent.” - Uta Frith, UCL Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, UK April 2011: 6x9: 296pp Hb: 978-1-84872-038-1: £29.95 $54.95 developmentalpsychologyarena. com/9781848720381

http://goo.gl/pJeWS

“This book is completely unique; it contains a wealth of description, and applies the latest cognitive neuroscience research to our understanding of autism and savantism. There are few opportunities for a psychologist to have followed an autistic savant across their lifetime over thirty years to see how their condition changes, and readers will be fascinated with this new volume.” - Simon Baron-Cohen, Professor of Developmental Psychopathology and Director of the Autism Research Centre, University of Cambridge, UK

published in 1977 and caused great international interest. Nadia Revisited updates her story and reconsiders the theories that endeavour to explain her extraordinary talent. As well as summarising the central issues from the original case study and presenting her remarkable drawings, the book explains Nadia’s subsequent development and present situation in light of the recent research on autistic spectrum disorders and representational drawing in children. The book also considers the phenomenon of savant syndrome: the condition in which those with autism or other learning disabilities have areas of unusual talent that contrast dramatically with their general functioning. Lorna Selfe uses this single case study to discuss theories of developmental psychology and considers the possible links between prodigious talent and underlying neurological dysfunction. The book is especially valuable for students and teachers of developmental psychology and neuropsychology, education and special education, as well as art and art education. Parents of autistic children or those with related disorders, learning difficulties or special needs will also be interested in the discussions presented in this book. Contents 1. Introduction. 2.

Neuroplasticity and Rehabilitation Sarah A. Raskin (Ed.) Trinity College, Hartford, Connecticut, USA

“The take-home message of Neuroplasticity and Rehabilitation is not only that our brains are more plastic than we ever expected, but also that we are learning how to influence this plasticity through informed treatment to achieve truly meaningful rehabilitation outcomes. From animal studies to sophisticated human trials, the book gathers a wealth of information from eminent experts. This book is absolutely essential reading for basic neuroscientists as well as for rehabilitation professionals at all levels of care. Understanding how and why the study of neuroplasticity can inform treatment choices will allow clinicians to make cutting-edge clinical decisions. These decisions may range from individual treatments, such as choice of physiotherapy intervention following stroke, to the design of holistic rehabilitation programs for survivors of severe acquired brain injury. The future of rehabilitation has now been linked inextricably to the growing field of neuroplasticity.” - Jill Winegardner, Lead Psychologist, Oliver Zangwill Centre for Neuropsychological Rehabilitation, UK May 2011: 6x9: 350pp Hb: 978-1-60918-137-6: £43.95 neuropsychologyarena.com/9781609181376

“This is a comprehensive book incorporating the latest research on neuroplasticity in diverse areas of cognitive function. It serves as an authoritative guide to how clinical practice can effectively incorporate significant new findings about brain plasticity and learning. It will be equally appropriate and useful for graduate students, experienced clinicians, and researchers in the field.” - Wayne A. Gordon, Jack Nash Professor, Department of Rehabilitation Medicine, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, New York, USA Brain plasticity is the focus of a growing body of research with significant implications for neurorehabilitation. This state-of-the-art volume explores ways in which brain-injured

individuals may be helped not only to compensate for their loss of cognitive abilities, but also possibly to restore those abilities. Expert contributors examine the extent to which damaged cortical regions can actually recover and resume previous functions, as well as how intact regions are recruited to take on tasks once mediated by the damaged region. Evidencebased rehabilitation approaches are reviewed for a range of impairments and clinical populations, including both children and adults. Contents S.A.

Single-Case Research Methods in Sport and Exercise Psychology Jamie Barker, Staffordshire University, UK; Paul McCarthy, Glasgow Caledonian University, UK; Marc Jones, Staffordshire University, UK; Aidan Moran, University College, Dublin, Eire • What is single-case research? • How can single-case methods be used within sport and exercise? Single-case research is a powerful method for examining change in outcome variables such as behaviour, performance and psychological constructs, and for assessing the efficacy of interventions. It has innumerable uses within the context of sport and exercise science, such as in the development of more effective performance techniques for athletes and sportspeople and in helping us to better understand exercise behaviours in clinical populations. However, the fundamental principles and techniques of single-case research have not always been clearly understood by students and researchers working in these fields. Single-Case Research Methods in Sport and Exercise Psychology is the first book to fully explain single-case research in the context of sport and exercise. Starting with first principles, the book offers a comprehensive introduction

to the single-case research process, from study design to data analysis and presentation. Including case studies and examples from across sport and exercise psychology, the book provides practical guidance for students and researchers and demonstrates the advantages and common pitfalls of singlecase research for anybody working in applied or behavioural science in a sport or exercise setting. Contents 1. Introduction to Single-Case Research: An Overview. 2. History and Philosophy of Single-Case Research in Sport and Exercise. 3. General Procedures in Single-Case Research. 4.

Social Cognition, Social Identity, and Intergroup Relations A Festschrift in Honor of Marilynn B. Brewer

Roderick M. Kramer, Stanford University, USA; Geoffrey J. Leonardelli, University of Toronto, Canada; Robert W. Livingston, Kellogg School of Management, USA (Eds.) Psychology Press Festschrift Series

“This volume documents, in the chapters by several generations of leading social psychologists, the enduring conceptual and empirical impact that Marilynn Brewer’s scholarship, mentorship, and professional vision and leadership have had on the field. The book not only highlights her many significant contributions and chronicles her innovative insights, but also reveals how these contributions reflect an integrated, penetrating analysis of group life, social cognition, identity, and meaning. The book builds on Marilynn Brewer’s previous accomplishments to chart the course of social psychology well into the future.” - John Dovidio, Yale University, USA “Marilynn Brewer is one of social psychology’s most distinguished scholars. Through her work on dual process models, optimal distinctiveness, social identity complexity, relational self, trust, dilemmas, and diversity she has transformed our understanding of intergroup relations and the role of social identity in intergroup behavior. This festschrift is a powerful testimony to Brewer’s impact, captured through the eyes of her students and collaborators – all leading figures in the field.” - Michael A. Hogg, Claremont Graduate University, USA

http://goo.gl/YuybS

“A wonderful collection of intriguing and far reaching essays that honor one of social psychology’s most powerful and creative thinkers. That each chapter both makes an original contribution and addresses the legacy of Professor Brewer attests to the breadth and richness of her intellectual scope. Marilynn Brewer deserves a fitting Festschrift volume and this is it.” - Dale T. Miller, Director of the Stanford Graduate

School of Business’ Center for Social Innovation, Stanford Graduate School of Business, USA Perhaps the defining feature of humanity is the social condition – how we think about others, identify ourselves with others, and interact with groups of others. The advances of evolutionary theory, social cognition, social identity, and intergroup relations, respectively, as major fields of inquiry have been among the crowning theoretical developments in social psychology over the past three decades. Marilynn Brewer has been a leading intellectual figure in the advancement of each of them. Her theory and research have had international impact on the way we think about the self and its relation to others. This festschrift celebrates Marilynn’s numerous contributions to social psychology, and includes original contributions from both leading and rising social psychologists from around the world. The volume will be of interest to social psychologists, industrial/organizational psychologists, clinical psychologists, and sociologists. Contents R.W. Livingston, G.J. Leonardelli, R.M.

Social Psychology Four-Volume Set Richard J. Crisp (Ed.) University of Kent, UK

Critical Concepts in Psychology Series

Gordon W. Allport, one of social psychology’s founding fathers, described the subdiscipline as “an attempt to understand and explain how the thoughts, feelings and behavior of individuals are influenced by the actual, imagined or implied presence of others”. From pioneering studies in the 1940s and 1950s, via the ‘cognitive revolution’ of the 1970s, to the emergence of sophisticated computerized methodologies and the wonders of functional MRI, social psychology remains a thriving enterprise.

Social Psychology and Evaluation

Melvin M. Mark, The Pennsylvania State University, USA; Stewart I. Donaldson, Claremont Graduate University, USA; Bernadette Campbell, Carleton University, USA (Eds.)

http://goo.gl/wQcUq

“This is an excellent book for introducing social and other psychologists to program evaluation, and for helping evaluators to anchor their practice in theories, concepts, and methods developed by social psychologists. These theories, concepts, and methods can shed light on the social and interpersonal phenomena and dynamics of settings in which evaluations are embedded, and can help ensure that data gathered in social settings are reliable and valid. The book creates a strong case for the importance of theory-driven program evaluation. It demonstrates a range of ways that social psychology can conceptually and practically guide program evaluations, make programs more effective, and, most important, make apparent the reasons why particular programs work. This book would be valuable as part of an applied social psychology course or a course preparing researchers to do program evaluation.” - Geoffrey Maruyama, Department of Educational Psychology, University of Minnesota, USA

This compelling work brings together leading social psychologists and evaluators to explore the intersection of these two fields and how their theory, practices, and research findings can enhance each other. An ideal professional reference or student text, the book examines how social psychological knowledge can serve as the basis for theorydriven evaluation; facilitate more effective partnerships with stakeholders and policy makers; and help evaluators ask more effective questions about behavior. Also identified are ways in which real-world evaluation findings can identify gaps in social psychological theory, and test and improve the validity of social psychological findings; for example, in the areas of cooperation, competition, and intergroup relations. The volume includes a useful glossary of both fields’ terms and offers practical suggestions for fostering cross-fertilization in research, graduate training, and employment opportunities. Each tightly edited chapter features an introduction and concluding reflection/discussion questions from the editors.

“The study of social processes, the design of social interventions, and the assessment of effectiveness of programs and policies are important endeavors. However, scholars in these areas have become increasingly isolated. Social Psychology and Evaluation brings together leading scholars to identify issues of shared interest and to reintegrate these areas empirically and conceptually. Bridging theory and practice, intervention and evaluation, and social psychology and social policy, the book is well written and accessible to a broad audience. At a time of increasing specialization, each chapter reminds us that theory, application, and evaluation are complementary and that understanding how these areas relate produces better science and greater benefit to society. This volume is timely, informative, and important; it sets a valuable agenda for the field for many years to come.” - John F. Dovidio, Department of Psychology, Yale University, USA

Socioemotional Development in Cultural Context Xinyin Chen, University of Pennsylvania, USA Kenneth H. Rubin, University of Maryland, USA (Eds.) Social, Emotional, and Personality Development Series

“This volume signals a new stage in our thinking about the role of culture in socioemotional development. As the distinguished contributors demonstrate, the study of culture has moved from description to process, from static to dynamic, and from a single- to a multi-level enterprise. Scholars and students across a range of disciplines will find the volume’s theoretical, applied, and policy insights of great value. Highly recommended.” - Ross D. Parke, Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Emeritus, University of California, Riverside, USA

http://goo.gl/eLJvs

“At long last, we have a book that describes the intersections between culture and socioemotional development! Chen and Rubin bring together an impressive array of scholars who have dedicated their careers to understanding the ways that emotions, self-regulation, attachment, ethnic identity, and peer relationships, among many topics, are shaped by the cultural context in which they develop. The chapters are written in a very accessible manner, making the book appropriate for both introductory and advanced psychology courses. I strongly and enthusiastically recommend this book for any student, scholar, or professional who is interested in children and adolescents.” - Niobe Way, Department of Applied Psychology, New York University, USA, and President, Society for Research on Adolescence, USA Filling a significant gap in the literature, this book examines the impact of culture on the social behaviors, emotions, and relationships of children around the world. It also explores cultural differences in what is seen as adaptive or maladaptive development. Eminent scholars discuss major theoretical perspectives on culture and development and present cuttingedge research findings. The volume addresses key aspects of

socioemotional functioning, including emotional expressivity, parent-child and peer relationships, autonomy, self-regulation, intergroup attitudes, and aggression. Implications for culturally informed intervention and prevention are highlighted. This book will be invaluable to developmental, social, educational, and child clinical psychologists, and other researchers and practitioners who work with children. It may also serve as a supplemental text in graduate-level courses. Contents Part 1. Theoretical Perspectives and Policy Implications. J.

Statistical Approaches to Measurement Invariance Roger E. Millsap Arizona State University, USA

“Measurement invariance is a key concept in psychological assessment. Millsap has provided the most readable account yet of this difficult topic, combining clear prose, technical details, and compelling examples. A ‘must have’ for quantitative expert and practicing scientist alike.” - Keith F. Widaman, University of California at Davis, USA “Roger Millsap is a leading authority on the problem of measurement invariance and has written an extraordinary book on this critically important topic. This book is a ‘must read’ by anyone working on the development of measurements for national and international surveys.” - David Kaplan, University of Wisconsin – Madison, USA Member, OECD/ PISA Questionnaire Expert Group “This comprehensive treatment of measurement invariance is sure to become the standard reference work on the topic. With thorough coverage of observed and latent variable models for prediction and assessment, Millsap’s book is packed with lucid discussions of the foundational role of measurement invariance in situations that require the comparison of measured attributes. All persons in the biobehavioral sciences and business who use test data when making decisions would benefit by reading this book.” - Niels Waller, University of Minnesota, USA

http://goo.gl/4rxuC

This book reviews the statistical procedures used to detect measurement bias. Measurement bias is examined from a general latent variable perspective so as to accommodate different forms of testing in a variety of contexts including cognitive or clinical variables, attitudes, personality dimensions, or emotional states. Measurement models that underlie psychometric practice are described, including their strengths and limitations. Practical strategies and examples for dealing with bias detection are provided throughout.

The book begins with an introduction to the general topic, followed by a review of the measurement models used in psychometric theory. Emphasis is placed on latent variable models, with introductions to classical test theory, factor analysis, and item response theory, and the controversies associated with each, being provided. Measurement invariance and bias in the context of multiple populations is defined in chapter 3, followed by chapter 4 which describes the common factor model for continuous measures in multiple populations and its use in the investigation of factorial invariance. Identification problems in confirmatory factor analysis are examined along with estimation and fit evaluation and an example using WAIS-R data. The factor analysis model for discrete measures in multiple populations with an emphasis on the specification, identification, estimation, and fit evaluation issues is addressed in the next chapter. An MMPI item data example is provided. Chapter 6 reviews both dichotomous and polytomous item response scales emphasizing estimation methods and model fit evaluation. The use of models in item response theory in evaluating invariance across multiple populations is then described, including an example that uses data from a large-scale achievement test. Chapter 8 examines item bias evaluation methods that use observed scores to match individuals and provides an example that applies item response theory to data introduced earlier in the book. The book concludes with the implications of measurement bias for the use of tests in prediction in educational or employment settings. A valuable supplement for advanced courses on psychometrics, testing, measurement, assessment, latent variable modeling, and/or quantitative methods taught in departments of Continued on next page.

Talking Heads

The Neuroscience of Language Gianfranco Denes Universities of Padua and Venice, Italy Translated by Philippa Venturelli Smith

“In this admirably concise yet comprehensive book, Denes brings together all of the major issues concerning the representation of language in the human brain, using evidence from neurology, neuroimaging, studies of braindamaged people, and linguistic theory. This is a valuable introduction that will encourage students from a wide range of disciplines to explore these issues.” - David Howard, Research Professor, Centre for Research in Linguistics and Language Sciences, Newcastle University, UK

The origin, development, and nature of language has been the focus of theoretical debate among philosophers for many centuries. Following the pioneering clinical observations 150 years ago of loss of language following a cerebral lesion, language started to be considered a biological system that could be investigated scientifically. As a consequence, an increasing number of scientists began to search for its anatomical and functional basis and its links with other such cognitive systems. The relatively recent introduction of neuroimaging tools, such as PET and fMRI, has brought rapid and groundbreaking developments to the field of Neurolinguistics.

With a glossary of the anatomical and linguistic terms, this book provides an invaluable resource to undergraduate and graduate students of psychology, psycholinguistics and linguistics. Contents 1. Defining Language. 2. Origin and Evolution of Language and Speech. 3. The Anatomy of Language. 4. Aphasia. 5. The Sounds of Language: Production and Comprehension of Words. 6.

In this book, Denes harnesses these advances to adopt a biolinguistic approach to the study of a subject that increasingly sees the collaboration of linguists, experimental psychologists, neuroscientists and clinicians. Talking Heads reviews the latest research to provide a concise analysis of the multifaceted aspects of language which focuses both on theoretical aspects and physical implementation. Following an up-to-date description of acquired language disorders, and their contribution to the design of a functional architecture of language, the book illustrates the neurological process involved in the production and comprehension of

The Psychology of Implicit Emotion Regulation Sander L Koole, Center for Advanced Study in Behavioral Science, USA Klaus Rothermund, Friedrich-Schiller Jena University, Germany (Eds.) A Special Issue of Cognition and Emotion

Emotion regulation has traditionally been conceived as a deliberative process, but there is growing evidence that many emotion-regulation processes operate at implicit levels. Implicit emotion regulation is initiated automatically, without conscious intention, and aims at modifying the quality of emotional responding. This special issue showcases recent advances in theorizing and empirical research on implicit emotion regulation. Implicit emotion regulation is pervasive in everyday life and contributes considerably to the effectiveness of emotion regulation. The contributions to this special issue highlight the significance of implicit emotion regulation in psychological adaptation, goal-directed behavior, interpersonal behavior, personality functioning, and mental health.

Transformative Consumer Research for Personal and Collective Well-Being David Glen Mick, University of Virginia, USA; Simone Pettigrew, University of Western Australia; Cornelia (Connie) Pechmann, University of California, Irvine; Julie L. Ozanne, Virginia Tech, Blackburg, USA (Eds.) “Just like the typical shopping mall, this book offers something tempting to everyone – whether you’re a researcher, practitioner, reformer, student, or simply a curious consumer. But unlike most stuff at the mall, the ideas on display here won’t make you fat and broke and degrade the environment, but instead, they provide new insights on how we can consume sustainably, healthily, and wisely on a changing and increasingly constrained planet.” - Erik Assadourian, Worldwatch Institute, Washington, DC, USA

http://goo.gl/IWvPs

“Having often written about the troubling impacts of overconsumption in America, I have long wished that scholars of marketing and consumer behavior would become deeply and directly involved in promoting the health and welfare of consumers and questioning the unsustainable impacts on the Earth of current consumption patterns. I have been delighted recently to see many of them take on this important challenge. With their perceptive theories and varied investigative methods, these academic consumer researchers bring exceptional skills to addressing and resolving key challenges of well-being that confront all of us worldwide. This inaugural book on Transformative Consumer Research brings together the best of their ground-breaking work and creates a foundation of knowledge and a guide for action and meaningful collaboration among researchers, consumers, activists, policy makers, and business executives.I urge you to read this timely book and join with its authors to help achieve a higher quality of life in a more sustainable society.” - John de Graaf, independent documentary producer for PBS, co-author of Affluenza: The All-Consuming Epidemic, Executive Director of Take Back Your Time, and codirector of the Seattle Area Happiness Initiative

“This thoughtful compendium by world-renowned psychologists, sociologists, economists, and consumer behavior scholars addresses significant and timely topics on weighty issues facing marketers (e.g., sustainability), consumers (materialism, addiction, saving, risky decision making), policy makers (consumer vulnerability), and society (obesity, aging, poverty). Succinct research summaries and provocative research agendas offer hope for understanding how marketing and consumption choices can make for a better tomorrow. The volume is a must read for those with the courage to boldly attack consequential issues regarding the role of consumption on personal, social, and societal welfare.” - Deborah MacInnis, Vice Dean for Research and Strategy, Charles L. and Ramona I. Hilliard Professor of Business Administration, and Professor of Marketing, University of Southern California, USA Daily existence is more interconnected to consumer behaviors than ever before, encompassing many issues of well-being. Problems include unhealthy eating; credit card mismanagement; alcohol, tobacco, pornography, and gambling abuse; marketplace discrimination; and ecological deterioration; as well as at-risk groups who are impoverished, impaired, or elderly. Opportunities for well-being via consumer behaviors include empowerment via the Internet, product sharing, leisure pursuits, family consumption, and proenvironmental activities, among others. In 2005 the Association for Consumer Research launched Transformative Consumer Research (TCR). Its mission is to foster research on quality of life that is both rigorous and applied for better assisting consumers, their caregivers, policy administrators, and executives.

Visual Methods in Psychology Using and Interpreting Images in Qualitative Research Paula Reavey (Ed.) London South Bank University, UK

“This book will bring something genuinely new to the rapidly growing field of visual research. In fact, as a collection it will provide a real step change in our understanding of the nature, the roles and the potential of visual research methods.” - Alan Bryman, Professor of Organizational and Social Research, The University of Leicester, UK

and psychological theory in their topic area, as well as clearly outlining how they carried out their specific research project. The contributors draw on qualitative sources of verbal data, such as spoken interview, ethnographic notes, diaries, focus group discussions and naturalistic conversation alongside their use of visual material.

“The scope of this text is impressive. It spans a good range of approaches to analysis and theoretical approaches, and covers an engaging array of areas of psychology. What is really commendable is the interpretive framework provided by the editor in framing why and how visual materials have now – eventually – come into use within psychological research. This makes it a very welcome volume that addresses a current gap in methodological debates within psychology.” - Erica Burman, Professor of Psychology and Women’s Studies, Manchester Metropolitan University

This book provides a unique insight into the potential for combining methods in order to create new multi-modal methodologies, and it presents and analyses these with psychology specific questions in mind. The range of topics covered includes sexuality, embodiment, identity, interpersonal communication, group processes, child development, forensic psychology, race, and gender, making this volume a vital contribution to psychology, sociology and gender studies.

This comprehensive volume provides an unprecedented illustration of the potential for visual methods in psychology. Each chapter explores the set of theoretical, methodological, as well as ethical and analytical issues that shape the ways in which visual qualitative research is conducted in psychology. Using a variety of forms of visual data, including photography, documentary film-making, drawing, internet media, model making, walking and map drawing, video recording and collages, each author endeavors to broaden the scope for understanding experience and subjectivity, using visual qualitative methods.
