Advertising Theory

Edited by Shelly Rodgers, University of Missouri, USA and Esther Thorson, University of Missouri, Columbia, USA Routledge Communication Series

Advertising Theory provides detailed and current explorations of key theories in the advertising discipline. The volume gives a working knowledge of the primary theoretical approaches of advertising, offering a comprehensive synthesis of the vast literature in the area. Editors Shelly Rodgers and Esther Thorson have developed this volume as a forum in which to compare, contrast, and evaluate advertising theories in a comprehensive and structured presentation. Chapters provide concrete examples, case studies, and readings written by leading advertising scholars and educators. Utilizing McGuire’s persuasion matrix as the structural model for each chapter, the text offers a wider lens through which to view the phenomenon of advertising as it operates within various environments. Within each area of advertising theory – and across advertising contexts – both traditional and non-traditional approaches are addressed, including electronic word-of-mouth advertising, user-generated advertising, and social media advertising contexts.

Applied Statistics for the Social and Health Sciences Rachel A. Gordon, University of Illinois, USA

“True to its title, it is ideal for a wide range of social and health sciences. The examples are practical applications where students will be interested in the results. Including both SAS and Stata code and exceptionally clear help interpreting the results sets this book apart from the rest.” - Alan C. Acock, Human Development and Family Sciences, Oregon State University, USA “I have been teaching a year-long graduate-level statistics course to first-year sociology, education, policy analysis and demography Ph.D. students for the past 39 years. I have always pieced together material from several different textbooks, software manuals, and published articles, since no one volume met the need to provide entering graduate students with appropriate content coverage at the right difficulty level. Rachel Gordon’s new book meets these needs better than any other volume I have seen.” - George Farkas, Education, University of California, Irvine, USA

“This book is a teacher’s dream, perfect for an applied regression course in the health sciences. After covering introductory statistics and classical regression, it offers a sophisticated yet accessible approach to the generalized linear model, particularly with regard to logistic regression. Numerous excerpts from recent research papers complement the text nicely. I know of no book like it.” Richard T. Campbell, Biostatistics and Sociology, University of Illinois at Chicago, USA Applied Statistics for the Social and Health Sciences provides graduate students in the social and health sciences with the basic skills that they need to estimate, interpret, present, and publish statistical models using contemporary standards. The book targets the social and health science branches such as human development, public health, sociology, psychology, education, and social work in which students bring a wide range of mathematical skills and have a wide range of methodological affinities. For these students, a successful course in statistics will not only offer statistical content but will also help them develop an appreciation for how statistical techniques might answer some of the research questions of interest to them.

Augmenting Cognition

Idan Segev, The Hebrew University, Jerusalem, Israel and Henry Markram, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Lausanne, Switzerland Augmenting cognition is a rapidly emerging field in neuroscience, concerned with the translation of what is known about cognitive function and dysfunction to engineer approaches to enhance and rehabilitate the brain. Modern medicine has few options to treat those with cognitive deficiencies, and as we learn more about the biology of these conditions, we consider the design of a new class of therapies to restore and augment cognition. This book describes a number of the foundational areas of cognitive enhancement, with chapters devoted to the following subject areas: use of stem cells, savants, post-traumatic stress disorder, deep-brain stimulation, music and dance, virtual reality, role of sleep, longevity, drugs, and the brain-computer interface.

Birmingham Cognitive Screen

Glyn Humphreys, University of Oxford, UK and Wai-Ling Bickerton, University of Birmingham, UK

Following different kinds of brain damage, including stroke, head injury, carbon monoxide poisoning, and degenerative change, people can experience a range of cognitive problems, in addition to any difficulties in motor function. These problems strongly influence a patient’s ability to recover, but often patients are not routinely screened to detect them. Birmingham Cognitive Screen (BCoS) is a new test instrument. The test pack consists of a manual, a ringbound Test Book, the Auditory Attention Test stimuli on CD, a pack of 15 Examiner Booklets, a pack of 15 Examinee booklets, and a set of test objects, all contained in a durable messenger bag. Developed to screen patients for cognitive problems, it provides a novel ‘cognitive profile’ across a range of cognitive processes within a one-hour testing session, that will indicate whether a patient has a clinical impairment (related to norms) in five primary domains of cognition: • Attention and executive function • Language March 2012 Multi-pack set : 978-1-84872-099-2: £250.00 $450.00

• Memory • Number skills • Praxis and action

Training on administration of the assessment is available from The following items are available as free downloads from or buy them from Psychology Press: Birmingham Cognitive Screen Examiner’s Booklet (Pack of 15): Birmingham Cognitive Screen Examinee’s Booklet (Pack of 15): Birmingham Cognitive Screen Examiner’s Booklet B (Pack of 15): CONTENTS 1. Attention and Executive Functions. 2. Language. 3. Memory. 4. Number Skills. 5. Praxis. 6. Appendices.

BCoS has been validated against ‘standard’ neuropsychological tests used to measure similar cognitive functions. It has also been used for prognostic modelling, and assessed against measures of cognition and activities of everyday living for patients in the chronic stage.

The first test of its kind, BCoS is an invaluable tool for neuropsychologists, neuropsychiatrists, occupational and speech therapists, and a wide range of other clinical practitioners.

Cognitive Consistency

A Fundamental Principle in Social Cognition Edited by Bertram Gawronski, University of Western Ontario, Canada and Fritz Strack, University of Würzburg, Germany “With chapter authors including central figures in attitudes and social cognition, this book’s ambitious scope is evident from initial chapters on consciousness, social neuroscience, connectionism, and fluency, to concluding ones on stereotyping, social justice, and group processes. In between, chapters cover such diverse subjects as identity, motivational fit, implicit ambivalence, and regret, among many others, organized into major sub-areas of social cognition and social psychology. This volume joins a very small handful of worthy successors to Festinger’s A Theory of Cognitive Dissonance. More important, it resurrects, modernizes, and expands cognitive consistency theories in a way that makes a valuable contribution. I intend to use this book in my graduate course on social cognition. It should be useful in training the next generation of graduate students, while providing a novel and heuristic perspective for more advanced professionals. Gawronski and Strack have created an instant classic.” - Donal E. Carlston, Department of Psychological Sciences, Purdue University, USA

March 2012: 6⅛x9¼: 494pp Hb: 978-1-60918-946-4: £56.99

“Cognitive consistency has been an implicit if not explicit construct in social psychology for over 60 years, cutting across both motivated reasoning and automaticity and playing a role in all phases of information processing, including attention and comprehension, information retrieval, inference and judgment, and behavioral decision making. This volume – edited and written by well-known psychologists with perspectives ranging from cognitive neuroscience to interpersonal relations – testifies to the breadth of issues to which consistency principles are potentially relevant. In combination, the chapters provide a valuable resource for cognitive and social psychologists and graduate students.” - Robert S. Wyer, Jr., Department of Marketing, Chinese University of Hong Kong, USA

This volume provides an overview of recent research on the nature, causes, and consequences of cognitive consistency. In 22 chapters, leading scholars address the pivotal role of consistency principles at various levels of social information processing, ranging from microlevel to macro-level processes. The book’s scope encompasses mental representation, processing fluency and motivational fit, implicit social cognition, thinking and reasoning, decision making and choice, and interpersonal processes. Key findings, emerging themes, and current directions in the field are explored, and important questions for future research identified. CONTENTS B. Gawronski, F.

“In The Construction of the Self, Second Edition, Harter shows again why she has been the preeminent scholar in child and adolescent development for over four decades. Weaving together new theoretical insights with a far-ranging review of diverse research literatures, Harter provides a masterful look at the processes through which cognitive changes and personal experiences combine to influence selfviews, which in turn underlie broader patterns of social and psychological development. Harter’s perspectives on adaptive and maladaptive trajectories of self development provide an important framework for promoting self-views that buttress positive relationships and psychological well-being.” - Mark R. Leary, Duke University, North Carolina, USA An important work from a leading scholar, this book explores self-development from early childhood to adulthood. Susan Harter traces the normative stages that define the emergence of many self-processes, including self-esteem. She also addresses individual differences and societal influences on self-development. Presenting pioneering empirical research, Harter shows that increasingly mature features of the self have both benefits and liabilities for psychological adjustment. The book highlights the causes and consequences of different types of self-representations, including those that are unrealistically

The Development of Emotional Intelligence A Case Study

Nadja Reissland, University of Durham, UK Concepts in Developmental Psychology Series

“Here is a beautifully written book about young children’s emotional development, which is informative, interesting and intelligent and, at the same time, profoundly moving. Nadja Reissland’s description of the growing and fast-changing relationship between a particular father and his daughter, and of its sudden and tragic ending, is an impressive contribution to the study of children’s emotions.” - Peter Bryant FRS, Senior Research Fellow, University of Oxford, UK

“This is a charming book that has something to say to a wide range of audiences. The unfolding of emotional intelligence is illustrated movingly with an excellent longitudinal case study through father-daughter conversations from the birth of the daughter to the death of the father six years later. The case illustrates how a deeply empathetic and sensitive father helps his young daughter Toto to become emotionally intelligent, which will in turn guide her through the most difficult times when her father is dying.” - Emese Nagy, Senior Lecturer, University of Dundee, UK How do children learn about the expression and meaning of emotions – both happy and sad? This book answers questions regarding the foundation of emotional intelligence, and examines how children become emotionally literate as they are socialised into their family environment from birth to two years of age. These early stages are vitally important in teaching children to understand themselves and others, as well as how to relate to people, and how to adapt to and cope with their immediate surroundings.

In order to examine the development of emotional intelligence, the author presents an overview of the literature on the subject and in the second part of the book presents a case study in which the concepts introduced in the first part of the book are revisited. Based on daily tape-recorded ‘conversations’ between a baby and her father, the data demonstrate how, over a two-year period, the child learns to express and understand emotions within social interactions. This capacity to reason with emotions is examined through four areas: perceiving emotion, integrating emotion, understanding emotion and managing emotion. The Development of Emotional Intelligence adds a new perspective to the theoretical debate on emotions and how they develop. It will be of great interest to psychologists and any professionals dealing with families. It will also be helpful reading for parents. CONTENTS Part 1.

Emerging Topics on Father Attachment Considerations in Theory, Context and Development

Edited by Lisa A. Newland, University of South Dakota, USA, Harry S. Freeman, University of South Dakota, USA and Diana D. Coyl, California State University, USA

November 2011: 7x10: 278pp Pb: 978-0-415-50895-7: £24.95 $45.95 2010 Hb: 978-0-415-57459-4: £80.00 $125.00

This book is the first of its kind to focus specifically on children’s attachment to fathers, and explores the connections among fathering, family dynamics, and attachment relationships. It includes theoretical, methodological and research reports written by an interdisciplinary group of researchers from around the globe. The purpose of this book is to familiarize the reader with the conceptualization, measurement and provisions of the attachment bond between children and their fathers, from infancy through young adulthood and across diverse individual, family, community, and cultural systems. Recent empirical findings suggest that new methods of measuring child–father attachment are warranted, and that attachment to fathers may be unique from, but complementary to attachment to mothers. These findings also suggest that attachment to fathers uniquely predicts children’s healthy developmental outcomes, and these findings are robust across various contexts, but these predictive relationships are best understood within context. This book provides a summary of current scholarly knowledge of fathering and attachment, and describes future directions to be explored by professionals, policy makers and practitioners within family services, education, and social work settings. It is also of interest to the general public. This book was published as a special issue of Early Child Development and Care. CONTENTS Click here for more information or to order online

The Emotions

A Philosophical Introduction Julien Deonna and Fabrice Teroni, University of Bern, Switzerland “Quite simply the best introduction to the philosophy of the emotions on the market. The book is beautifully written, and would be ideal for an advanced undergraduate or graduate course on the emotions, but in fact all scholars working on this topic will have things to learn from it. I recommend it very highly.” - Tim Crane, University of Cambridge, UK

emotions, over which many great philosophers of the past have laboured, revolve around attempts to understand what this significance amounts to. Are emotions feelings, thoughts, or experiences? If they are experiences, what are they experiences of? Are emotions rational? In what sense do emotions give meaning to what surrounds us?

“Deonna’s and Teroni’s argumentation is subtle and muscular; their prose is engaging and accessible; and their novel account of the relation of emotions to value is particularly notable. Not only informative, but exciting to read.” - Ronald de Sousa, University of Toronto, Canada

The Emotions: A Philosophical Introduction introduces and explores these questions in a clear and accessible way. The authors discuss the following key topics:

“Exceptionally wide-ranging, yet tightly structured, sophisticated in discussion, yet succinctly and lucidly written. Accessible to newcomers and enlarging to those already engaged in philosophising about the emotions.” - David Pugmire, University of Southampton, UK “An eminently readable book, which will certainly prove indispensable for neophytes and specialists alike.” - Christine Tappolet, University of Montréal, Canada March 2012: 6x9: 146pp Hb: 978-0-415-61492-4: £65.00 $120.00 Pb: 978-0-415-61493-1: £17.99 $34.95 Available as an e-inspection copy

“The positive account of emotions Deonna and Teroni provide is a viable contender, well worth taking seriously. I highly recommend the book.” - Bennett Helm, Franklin and Marshall College, USA “This is an excellent volume. The work is original, important and timely, and will no doubt receive a wide audience.” Michael Brady, University of Glasgow, UK “This is a wonderful, engaging introduction to the philosophy of emotion. The book has a fast pace and a challenging style. Yet, its subject matter represents first-class scholarship.” Nico H. Frijda, University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands Click here for more information or to order online

Extraordinary Memories for Exceptional Events Stephen R. Schmidt, Middle Tennessee State University, USA Essays in Cognitive Psychology Series

Not all memories are created equal. Our memories for some very exceptional events seem to stand out in our minds, and as such they may form the very core of who we are. Perhaps you have a vivid recollection of a fateful day, an unforgettable face, or a hilarious joke. This book summarizes theories and data that provide insight into these extraordinary memories for exceptional events. The book begins with a classification scheme for exceptional events, followed by a theoretical overview grounded in four metaphors of memory. The classification scheme and theoretical perspectives are used to explore topics including: flashbulb memories, the influence of emotion on memory, the bizarre imagery effect, the humor effect, the serial position effect, and the isolation effect. The conclusion provides a framework for understanding these outstanding memories for exceptional events. CONTENTS 1. What are Extraordinary Memories and Exceptional Events? 2. Metaphors and Foundations. 3. Flashbulb Memories. 4. Emotional Significance: Laboratory Studies. 5. Secondary Distinctiveness: Memory for the Bizarre and Unusual. 6.

Father–Daughter Relationships Contemporary Research and Issues Linda Nielsen, Wake Forest University, USA Textbooks in Family Studies Series

“The [research] is very solid. … I especially appreciate that it is up-to-date and interdisciplinary. … The writing … is high in clarity and accessibility. … This book will be a huge contribution to the field.” - Robert Crosnoe, University of Texas at Austin, USA “This book … will bring disparate research and information on father–daughter relationships together under one comprehensive ‘roof’. … The manuscript was engaging, informative, and interesting in a page-turning sort of way that textbooks usually are not. … Sources were current and some of the very best in the field. ... I would definitely recommend this book to my Women’s Studies colleagues. … It is … a unique resource.” - Brian P. Masciadrelli, State University of New York at Fredonia, USA “Dr. Nielsen has summarised the available literature compellingly. ... I expect a strong demand, especially in women’s studies programmes and in courses for trainee professionals. ... The material is very readable ... [and] enhanced by ... the liberal use of quotes [that] bring the material to life. ... Professionals who do custody evaluations and reports ... would ... love such a book. ... It ... answer[s] questions that many of them face every day.” - Michael E. Lamb, University of Cambridge, UK

“The marked growth that has occurred in research on the father’s role in child rearing and the effects of this relationship on youth outcomes over the last decade makes this book particularly timely. … The material is presented in an interesting way. … The use of active learning strategies is a valuable aspect of the book. … I would seriously consider adopting this book …. [due to] its reliance on findings from the recent research and inclusion of multiple ways to enhance engagement in the material.” - Sharlene Wolchik, Arizona State University, USA

“The book provides a quick and easily-read reference and will acquaint readers with up-to-date research demographics, laws, and views on a variety of issues related to father– daughter relationships. … The author’s focus … allows for a depth of coverage that is unique.” - Harry Freeman, University of South Dakota, USA “The citations are very recent. … The author writes clearly. ... Appropriate for graduate students, faculty/scholars, and undergraduates in a variety of fields. ... I would seriously consider it for adoption.” - Mark Fine, University of Missouri – Columbia, USA “It fills a much understudied need. I know of no other book that addresses this issue. … The author is clearly accomplished as a scholar with expertise in this area, and a very accomplished textbook author.” - Robert Milardo, University of Maine, USA, Series Editor The first research-based text that focuses on the impact of the father–daughter relationship, this provocative book examines the factors that can strengthen or weaken these relationships and the impact that these relationships have on society. The research is brought to life with compelling personal stories from fathers and daughters, including well-known celebrities and politicians. Controversial questions engage the reader, and film lists and website resources demonstrate the relevance of the research. Boxed quizzes and questionnaires show students how the research can be applied to their own lives while others highlight the relationships between actual fathers and daughters. Boldfaced terms, a conclusion, and review questions keep readers focused on the key concepts. How these relationships are often ignored or denigrated in the media and in some mental health and legal systems is examined. The hope is that readers will apply the research to their own families and/or work.

The book addresses:


What is “good” fathering?

How do daughters influence their fathers’ well-being?

How do fathers affect their daughters’ social, academic, athletic, and psychological development?

1. Introduction. 2. Fathers, Facts and Fiction. 3. Fathering and Fatherhood. 4. How and Why Fathers Matter. 5. The Mother’s Impact. 6. Divorced Fathers and their Daughters. 7. Fathers and Daughters in Racial and Ethnic Minorities. 8. Difficult and Challenging Relationships. Epilogue.

How are problems such as depression, eating disorders, and teenage pregnancy related to the quality of these relationships?

How are father–daughter relationships in ethnic and racial groups unique?

How do incarceration, abuse, gay or lesbian relationships, military service, immigration, and poverty affect father– daughter relationships?

The book opens with the importance of the father’s role to daughters and the changing patterns of these roles. Chapter 2 examines the myths and misconceptions of father–daughter relationships, including how they are portrayed in the media and the differences between parenting styles. Chapter 3 explores the behaviors that constitute “good” fathering. Scales used to measure “good” fathering are included. How fathers affect their daughters’ social, academic, intellectual, athletic, and psychological development is then considered. Factors that can weaken father–daughter relationships, such as divorce, including various theoretical perspectives, are explored in chapters 5 and 6. Father–daughter relationships of racial or ethnic minorities and an array of potentially destructive situations that affect these relationships are the focus of chapters 7 and 8. The impact of fathers who are incarcerated, abusive, alcoholics, gay, or sperm donors are considered. The book concludes with suggestions on where we go from here. Intended as a supplemental text for upper-level undergraduate or graduate courses on father–daughter relationships and/ or parenting taught in human development, family studies, psychology, sociology, counseling, social work, and women’s studies, this practical book also appeals to mental health practitioners, social workers, legal professionals, and school counselors interested in these relationships.

such as:

“This book presents a diverse set of chapters, providing a wide ranging review of current issues in visuo-spatial cogniton. It is refreshing to find such a range of material presented together, and I am sure this strategy will continue to foster debate and discussion of these important issues. The book provides both a survey of recent and not so recent research, as well as recounting a particular route taken through a range of topics by Denis and co-workers. It is invaluable reading both for those with a clear sense of direction, as well as those who prefer a more meandering course through a range of related topics, gaining inspiration along the way.” - Kevin Dent, Department of Psychology, University of Essex, UK

Working memory

Space and time representation

Language and embodiment.

“This timely edited collection is a joy to read. The chapters are approachable and clearly written, and cover every major area of the field of mental imagery and its place in cognition.” - Trevor Harley, School of Psychology, University of Dundee, UK The nature of mental images and their relation to language has caused controversy amongst psychologists for years, and the so-called “imagery debate” is still unresolved. However, fresh light is being shed on this argument using recent findings in neuroscience and the development of behavioural studies. This book analyses how this research can be used to explain the performance of complex tasks in everyday life. Click here for more information or to order online

Reviewing the state-of-the-art research in the field of imagery, visuo-spatial memory, spatial representation and language, with special emphasis on their interactions, the volume shows how, and to what extent, findings from the studies on imagery can positively influence and enrich other psychological areas

Chapter 9, written by Michel Denis, to whom this book is dedicated, analyses more than three decades of research, and outlines the shared scientific journey of friendship and discovery that has developed across various cognitive topics, all of which are linked to, and inspired by, imagery conceptualization. This is the only book to present a critical outline of research on these topics in a single volume, and as such will be invaluable to advanced undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers in such fields as cognitive psychology, neuroscience, computer science and neuropsychology.

Handbook of Developmental Research Methods

Edited by Brett Laursen, Florida Atlantic University, USA, Todd D. Little, University of Kansas, USA and Noel A. Card, University of Arizona, USA “The study of developmental change is a cardinal activity of behavioral and social science, but determining how to do it has prompted denial, disagreement, and despair for nearly a century. The contributors to this excellent volume are an outstanding group whose qualifications for guiding the field at this point in our history are truly stellar. Graduate students and faculty members alike will find this well-organized, highly informative volume indispensable as they articulate questions, design research, and analyze data pertaining to the study of change.” - John R. Nesselroade, Hugh Scott Hamilton Professor of Psychology, University of Virginia, USA “In 41 chapters, this volume covers a very wide range of research methods, all extremely relevant to the developmental researcher. I know of no other handbook that even comes close to being so generally useful to young developmental researchers seeking to improve their knowledge of research methods. Numerous advanced topics are also treated – in many cases in depth – making the book valuable for methodologists as well. A highly commendable feature is the discussion of each method’s applicability and assumptions.” - Lars R. Bergman, Department of Psychology, Stockholm University, Sweden Click here for more information or to order online

This is the first methods handbook specifically designed to meet the needs of today’s developmental scholars. Leading developmental methodologists describe cutting-edge approaches to measurement and design, data collection, and interindividual and intraindividual longitudinal analysis. For each method or analytic tool – whether created to measure change, or adapted for this purpose – chapters describe key issues, assumptions, and applications. Chapters also include research examples that demonstrate the procedures in action and give readers a better understanding of how to match research questions to developmental methods. The companion

Handbook of Self and Identity Second Edition

Edited by Mark R. Leary, Duke University, North Carolina, USA and June Price Tangney, George Mason University, Virginia, USA “Take the world’s leading authorities on the psychology of the self and ask them to write about what they know best, and you have the Handbook of Self and Identity. Now in its second edition, this remarkable handbook offers the first and last word on this important subject.” - Daniel Gilbert, Harvard University, Massachusetts, USA “Understanding the nature of self – what it is and what it does – has challenged scholars for many centuries. Scientific progress in understanding the nature of self was stifled by the inherent subjectivity and ambiguity that plagued much of the early research on the topic. Fortunately, the last few decades have witnessed major strides in the scientific understanding of self-relevant processes. In this second edition, Leary and Tangney have assembled a stellar group of authors who have made important contributions to understanding the nature of self, from its biological foundations to its developmental and cultural influences. This book will serve as an invaluable resource for students and scholars alike, and it belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in self and identity.” - Todd F. Heatherton, Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, USA

The Impact of Technology on Relationships in Educational Settings

Edited by Angela Costabile, University of Calabria, Italy and Barbara A. Spears, University of South Australia As the linguistic, cognitive and social elements of our lives are transformed by new and emerging technologies, educational settings are also challenged to respond to the issues that have arisen as a consequence. This book focuses on that challenge: using psychological theory as a lens to highlight the positive uses of new technologies in relationships and educational settings, and to advocate technological learning opportunities and social support where the misuse and abuse of ICT occurs. The Impact of Technology on Relationships in Educational Settings sets out to explore the role of ICTs in relationship forming, social networking and social relationships within our schools and has grown out of the European Cooperation in Science and Technology (COST) Action on Cyberbullying, involving 28 participating countries, and two non-COST countries, of which Australia is one.

This cutting-edge international text offers cross-cultural, psychological perspectives on the positive uses of new and emerging technologies to improve social relationships and examples of best practice to prevent virtual bullying. This comes at a time when much of the focus in current writings has been on the more negative aspects which have emerged as new technologies evolved: cyberbullying, cyber-aggression and cybersafety concerns.

Judging Passions

Moral Emotions in Persons and Groups Roger Giner-Sorolla, University of Kent, UK European Monographs in Social Psychology Series

“This is an excellent, easy to grasp and engagingly written book which is highly accessible for all students and researchers working on emotions, interpersonal and intergroup relations and morality. I would strongly recommend this book to everybody who is interested in these topics.” - Thomas Kessler, Head of Social Psychology, Friedrich-Schiller-University, Jena, Germany “Finally, a book that describes in detail the important intersections between groups, morality, and emotions. Roger Giner-Sorolla provides a fresh new look to these very old concepts.” - Brad Bushman, Margaret Hall and Robert Randal Rinehart Chair of Mass Communication, Ohio State University, USA

Psychological research shows that our emotions and feelings often guide the moral decisions we make about our own lives and the social groups to which we belong. But should we be concerned that out important moral judgments can be swayed by ‘hot’ passions, such as anger, disgust, guilt, shame and sympathy? Aren’t these feelings irrational and counterproductive?

Drawing on extensive research, including many studies from the author’s own lab, this book shows why emotions work to encourage reasonable moral behaviour, and why they sometimes fail.

This is the first single-authored volume in the field of psychology dedicated to a separate examination of the major moral and positive emotions. As such, the book is ideal reading for researchers, postgraduates and undergraduates of social psychology, sociology, philosophy and politics. CONTENTS 1. Emotions, Morality, and Groups: Introduction and Definition. 2. Emotion: A Functional Conflict Theory. 3. Emotions, Morality, and Groups: Intersections. 4. Disgust and Anger. 5. Shame and Guilt. 6. Positive Moral Emotions. 7. Applications and Conclusion.

Using a functional conflict theory of emotions (FCT), GinerSorolla proposes that each emotion serves a number of different functions, sometimes inappropriately, and that moral emotions in particular are intimately tied to problems faced by the individuals in a group, and by groups interacting with each other. Specifically, the author suggests that these emotions help us, as individuals and group members, to: •

Appraise developments in the environment

Learn through association

Regulate our own behaviour

Communicate convincingly with others.

Memory and Aging

Current Issues and Future Directions Edited by Moshe Naveh-Benjamin, University of Missouri-Columbia, USA and Nobuo Ohta, University of Tsukuba, Japan “This collection of related chapters by eminent researchers in the field provides an outstanding opportunity to catch up with the latest findings and theoretical insights in the important and highly relevant area of memory and aging. A noteworthy feature of the book is its broad coverage of issues: age-related change in memory and cognition remains the dominant focus, but the topics range from biological correlates of these changes, through cognitive studies, to a consideration of the social, emotional and cultural contexts in which the changes are embedded. It is an excellent collection, and I recommend it highly to everyone interested in how memory changes as we age.” - Fergus I.M. Craik, Rotman Research Institute, Canada “This is the book I will recommend to anyone asking about a state-of-the-art volume on aging memory. Students and researchers alike will find in it both empiricial and theoretical inspirations.” - Elizabeth Maylor, University of Warwick, UK “In this book, premier scientists summarize the state of the art in research on the aging of human memory. The focus is on various aspects of memory performance, including its socio-cultural ramifications and neural correlates. I strongly recommend this book to those wishing to obtain a comprehensive overview on memory functioning in adulthood and old age.” - Ulman Lindenberger, Max Planck Institute for Human Development, Germany Click here for more information or to order online

Current demographical patterns predict an aging worldwide population. It is projected that by 2050, more than 20% of the US population and 40% of the Japanese population will be older than 65. A dramatic increase in research on memory and aging has emerged to understand the age-related changes in memory, since the ability to learn new information and retrieve previously learned information is essential for successful

aging, and allows older adults to adapt to changes in their environment, self-concept, and social roles. This volume represents the latest psychological research on different aspects of age-related changes in memory. Written by a group of leading international researchers, its chapters cover a broad array of issues concerning the changes that occur in memory as people grow older, including the mechanisms and processes underlying these age-related memory changes, how these changes interact with social and cultural environments, and potential programs intended to increase memory performance in old age. Similarly, the chapters draw upon diverse methodological approaches, including crosscultural extreme group experimental designs, longitudinal designs assessing intra-participant change, and computational approaches and neuroimaging assessment. Together, they provide converging evidence for stability and change in memory as people grow older, for the underlying causes of these patterns, as well as for the heterogeneity in older adults’ performance. Memory and Aging is essential reading for researchers in memory, cognitive aging, and gerontology. CONTENTS M. Naveh-Benjamin, N. Ohta, Preface. Part 1.

Motor Learning in Practice A Constraints-Led Approach

Edited by Ian Renshaw and Keith Davids, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, Australia and Geert J.P. Savelsbergh, Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, the Netherlands and Manchester Metropolitan University, UK Motor Learning in Practice explores the fundamental processes of motor learning and skill acquisition in sport, and explains how a constraints-led approach can be used to design more effective learning environments for sports practice and performance. Drawing on ecological psychology, the book examines the interaction of personal, environmental and task-specific constraints in the development of motor skills, and then demonstrates how an understanding of those constraints can be applied in a wide range of specific sports and physical activities.

January 2012: 6x9: 272pp Pb: 978-0-415-52240-3: £24.95 $42.95 2010 Hb: 978-0-415-47863-2: £95.00 $156.00

The first section of the book contains two chapters that offer an overview of the key theoretical concepts that underpin the constraints-led approach. These chapters also examine the development of fundamental movement skills in children, and survey the most important instructional strategies that can be used to develop motor skills in sport. The second section of the book contains eighteen chapters that apply these principles to specific sports, including basketball, football, boxing, athletics field events and swimming. This is the first book to apply the theory of a constraintsled approach to training and learning techniques in sport. Including contributions from many of the world’s leading scholars in the field of motor learning and development, this book is essential reading for any advanced student, researcher or teacher with an interest in motor skills, sport psychology, sport pedagogy, coaching or physical education.

The Neighborhood in the Internet Design Research Projects in Community Informatics John M. Carroll, Pennsylvania State University, USA Routledge Advances in Sociology Series

Today, “community” seems to be everywhere. At home, at work, and online, the vague but comforting idea of the community pervades every area of life. But have we lost the ability truly to understand what it means? The Neighborhood in the Internet investigates social and civic effects of community networks on local community, and how community network designs are appropriated and extended by community members.

CONTENTS 1. Community Lost, Community Regained. 2. What are Community Networks? 3. Appropriating a Community Network. 4. Community Consequences of a Network. 5. Learning in a Networked Community. 6. Reaching Across Generations. 7. Designing Our Town. 8. Whither Community Networks? References.

Carroll uses his conceptual model of “community” to reexamine the Blacksburg Electronic Village – the first Webbased community network – applying it to attempts to sustain and enrich contemporary communities through information technology. The book provides an analysis of the role of community in contemporary paradigms for work and other activity mediated by the Internet. It brings to the fore a series of design experiments investigating new approaches to community networking and addresses the future trajectory and importance of community networks.

Neuroeconomics: Hype or Hope?

Edited by Caterina Marchionni, University of Helsinki, Finland and Jack Vromen, Erasmus University of Rotterdam, The Netherlands Is neuroeconomics a flimsy fad likely to pass without leaving a discernible trace in economics? Or is it a promising new field with the potential to enrich and improve economic theory? Neuroeconomics brings together a unique mix of perspectives ranging from philosophy of science to neuroeconomics practice to reflect on the promises and limitations of neuroeconomics for the future of economics. The analyses collected in the volume suggest that although neuroeconomics raises methodological worries that ought to be dealt with, it might contribute to economics in various ways, some perhaps more promising than others. One thing comes out clearly, though: a complete insulation of economics from neuroscience and psychology is likely to do economics more harm than good. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Economic Methodology.

Neuropsychological Assessment of Work-Related Injuries

Edited by Shane S. Bush, Stony Brook University Medical School, New York, USA and Grant L. Iverson, University of British Columbia, Canada “Given the paucity of books on the neuropsychological assessment of individuals who have been injured at work, this is a welcome contribution. Neurological and psychological injuries specific to the workplace are summarized. The book succeeds in promoting evidence-based neuropsychological assessments by integrating the latest research and facilitating biopsychosocial understanding. Graduate students and experienced clinicians alike will benefit from the authoritative reviews and guidelines for practice in both clinical and forensic settings.” - Ronald M. Ruff, in private practice, San Francisco, California, USA “Bush, Iverson, and their well-known contributing authors have targeted an area of neuropsychological practice that is important, yet underserved, in terms of books that provide needed guidance. Clinicians will find a diversity of topics relevant to practice with individuals who have – or may have – work-related injuries.” - Jerry J. Sweet, NorthShore University HealthSystem and University of Chicago, USA February 2012: 6x9: 414pp Hb: 978-1-4625-0227-1: £43.99

Unique in its focus, this book provides an evidence-based framework for assessing work-related neurological and psychological injuries. Meeting a key need, chapters address a range of problems encountered in the workplace: traumatic brain injury, sports concussion, electrical injury, exposure to neurotoxic substances, posttraumatic stress, depression, and brain and psychological injuries experienced in combat. Professionals will find the best available tools and strategies for conducting effective, ethical evaluations of injured workers, making diagnostic determinations, considering

causality, determining disability status, and offering treatment recommendations. The complexities of consulting to attorneys, government agencies, and insurance companies are also discussed.

Politics in Organizations Theory and Research Considerations

Edited by Gerald R. Ferris, Florida State University, USA and Darren C. Treadway, State University of New York at Buffalo, USA SIOP Organizational Frontiers Series

“This book represents an important contribution to a timely – and often underappreciated – topic in the field of industrialorganizational (I-O) psychology: organizational politics. The editors have assembled a superb array of scholars who, collectively, cover a very broad range of subject areas in this domain and provide fresh insights from both conceptual and research perspectives. The book is a “must” for anyone – scholar or practitioner alike – who wants to gain a broader and deeper understanding of the critical role that politics plays in organizational settings.” - Lyman W. Porter, University of California, Irvine, USA “Power is an important topic in the organizational sciences. This compendium not only brings together what we know about politics in organizations from a variety of perspectives, it helps set a research agenda for the future. Ferris and Treadway have done a fantastic job in organizing the field, recruiting great chapters, and publishing the resource on organizational power and politics.” - Jeffrey Pfeffer, Professor, Graduate School of Business, Stanford University, USA, and author of Power: Why Some People Have it –and Others Don’t Click here for more information or to order online

“Politics in Organizations presents the good – yes, the good – the bad and the ugly – all true – about how human organizations work in human ways. The chapters are very thorough and frequently truly insightful, shedding muchneeded light on this largely ignored but very interesting take on human organizational functioning. The implications are wide-spread and suggest many avenues for important future research. And practitioners, of course, will empathize with what the book has to say and may find useful hints for how to deal with the politics they encounter.” - Benjamin Schneider, Senior Research Fellow, Valtera

“The study of organizational politics has had a rich history, but has not been integrated into the breadth of organizational behavior literature. In this volume, Ferris and Treadway pull together esteemed scholars who integrate the pervasive issue of organizational politics into a broad realm of organizational behavioral phenomena. This book is sure to revitalize the study of political behavior in organizations.” - Adrienne Colella, President, SIOP, James McFarland Distinguished Chair in Business, A.B. Freeman School of Business, Tulane University, USA This edited volume in the SIOP Frontiers series is one of the first to look at the psychological factors behind politics and power in organizations. Noted contributors from schools of management, psychology, sociology and political science look at the theory, research, methodology and ethical issues related to organizational politics and climates. The book is divided into three parts: Part 1 looks at the historical evolution of the field; Part 2 integrates organizational politics with important organizational behavior constructs and/or areas of inquiry, for example in the chapter by Lisa Leslie and Michele Gelfand which discusses the implications of cross-cultural politics on expatriates and within cross-national mergers; and Part 3 focuses on individual differences and organizational politics, focusing on the nature of political relationships.

The Psychology of Entertainment Media

Blurring the Lines Between Entertainment and Persuasion Second Edition Edited by L.J. Shrum, University of Texas at San Antonio, USA “People spend more time with entertainment media than with any other activity outside of work. Yet given how ubiquitous it is, we have spent far too little effort learning about how entertainment media affects how we think and act. This volume seeks to address this limitation in our knowledge by explaining how and why entertainment media may affect our everyday beliefs and actions.” - Ron Faber, School of Journalism and Mass Communication, University of Minnesota, USA “This volume is carefully developed and the approach has a clear significance to this important and rapidly changing field. The chapters that deal with the ways product and brand messages are integrated into media content deal with a new and unique, as well as urgent, research priority.” Sharon Shavitt, Department of Business Administration, University of Illinois, USA

As the impact of traditional advertising has declined over the last couple of decades, marketers have scrambled to find other ways to effectively communicate with consumers. Among other approaches, marketers have utilized various forms of product integration, i.e., the mixing of a commercial message in with the non-commercial message via TV, movies and other entertainment media. This book will be of interest to students and researchers in psychology, marketing, communication, advertising, and consumer behavior. CONTENTS L.J.

The Psychology of Eyewitness Identification

James Michael Lampinen, University of Arkansas, USA, Jeffrey S. Neuschatz and Andrew D. Cling, both University of Alabama in Huntsville, USA Essays in Cognitive Psychology Series

“Despite the tragedies that have arisen from an overreliance on eyewitness evidence, the message of The Psychology of Eyewitness Identification is a positive one. Through consideration of the interplay of theory and research, the authors reveal the variables and practices that influence accuracy, and point to steps that can be taken to benefit the criminal justice system. Students of memory in the classroom or the courtroom will find The Psychology of Eyewitness Identification an essential guide.” - Scott D. Gronlund, University of Oklahoma, USA

“The Psychology of Eyewitness Identification is a comprehensive and clear treatment of eyewitness identification science and its many productive connections to police practice and legal policy. The authors bring a careful, well-reasoned perspective, rigorous detail, and fresh examples that enliven their exploration of this significant research effort. The first chapter cleverly and compellingly draws the reader to the problem of eyewitness error. From that point, the book addresses the complexities of experimental and field research in a readable and engaging manner, with emphasis on the role of psychological research in helping the criminal justice system work more effectively.” - Nancy K. Steblay, Professor of Psychology, Augsburg College, Minneapolis, USA

This volume provides a tutorial review and evaluation of scientific research on the accuracy and reliability of eyewitness identification. The book starts with the perspective that there are a variety of conceptual and empirical problems with eyewitness identification as a form of forensic evidence, just as there are a variety of problems with other forms of forensic evidence. There is then an examination of the important results in the study of eyewitness memory and the implications of this research for psychological theory and for social and legal policy. The volume takes the perspective that research on eyewitness identification can be seen as the paradigmatic example of how psychological science can be successfully applied to real-world problems. CONTENTS 1. 27 Years. 2. Theoretical Approaches to Eyewitness Identification. 3. Estimator Variables. 4. System Variables. 5. Indicia of Reliability. 6. Field Studies of Eyewitness Identification. 7. Expert Testimony. 8. Conclusions and Thoughts. 9. Philosophical Afterword: Memory and Reasonable Belief.

“In conception and execution, this book does something that is both original and needed. Instead of taking a single route into the topic, it mixes complementary perspectives – from research on perception, memory, social reasoning, and philosophy to arrangements in a police lineup and the confidence of jurors in a trial. It is immensely helpful and illuminating.” - George Graham, Professor of Philosophy and Neuroscience, Georgia State University, Atlanta, USA

PTSD and Mild Traumatic Brain Injury

Edited by Jennifer J. Vasterling, Boston Healthcare System and Boston University School of Medicine, Massachusetts, USA, Richard A. Bryant, University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia and Terence M. Keane, Boston Healthcare System and Boston University, Massachusetts, USA “Vasterling, Bryant, and Keane have assembled an outstanding group of experts to provide a conceptual, scientific, and clinical overview of this daunting challenge. Co-occurring PTSD and mTBI unfortunately has emerged as a common problem for many service members and veterans in recent years. Since PTSD and mTBI affect one another, it is imperative that clinicians treat them concurrently, and do so within a multidisciplinary context. This book provides a thoughtful, comprehensive review of what we know, what we don’t know, and what we need to do to fill in the blanks. It should be mandatory reading for anyone in the field.” Matthew J. Friedman, Dartmouth Medical School, New Hampshire, USA

“Clinicians and scientists alike are certain to welcome this volume, which meets a real need in presenting a comprehensive review of the basic and clinical science of PTSD and mTBI. The biopsychosocial conceptual framework provides a perfect translational bridge to evidence-based clinical management. The book will rapidly become the reference of choice for clinicians facing the complexities of these two conditions and for students in the neurosciences.” Michael McCrea, Medical College of Wisconsin, USA Events that lead to traumatic brain injury are often also psychologically traumatic. Addressing a growing need among mental health practitioners, this authoritative book brings together experts in both posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). Chapters present empirically-based best practices for conceptualization, assessment, and intervention. The book also addresses the biological and psychosocial mechanisms by which PTSD and mTBI complicate each other; management of commonly associated conditions, including chronic pain and substance abuse; special considerations in military contexts; and possible ways to improve the structure and cost-effectiveness of providing care in this challenging area.

The Science of the Couple The Ontario Symposium, Volume 12

Edited by Lorne Campbell, University of Western Ontario, Canada, Jennifer La Guardia, University of Waterloo, Canada, James M. Olson, University of Western Ontario, Canada and Mark P. Zanna, University of Waterloo, Canada Ontario Symposia on Personality and Social Psychology Series

Although love and relationships have been focal points for poets and philosophers for thousands of years, these topics had not traditionally been the focus of empirical research. As a result, very little was known about how couples maintained happiness and satisfaction in their relationships, or how relationships deteriorated, ultimately ending in separation or divorce. However, since the early 1980s, relationships research has blossomed as a field – and is now one of the most vibrant topics in social psychology and beyond.

February 2012: 6x9: 287pp Hb: 978-1-84872-979-7: £49.95 $80.00

This volume brings together the latest research on couple functioning from the perspectives of social and personality psychology, neurobiology, health, and clinical psychology. Additionally, the research presented highlights the use of survey, experimental, implicit, and longitudinal methods, as well as specialized techniques employed in neuroscience, psychophysiology, and psychoneuroimmunology in the study of couple level processes. The underlying aim of this volume is to examine how these theories and methods converge to provide a deeper, holistic model of couples’ processes and functioning.

Social Thinking and Interpersonal Behavior

Edited by Joseph P. Forgas, University of New South Wales, Australia, Klaus Fiedler, Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg, Germany and Constantine Sedikides, University of Southampton, UK Sydney Symposium in Social Psychology Series

“You’ve got to hand it to that Sydney sunshine: not only does it attract some of the top minds in psychology to the Sydney Symposium each year (and there are stars aplenty in this year’s group), but judging from the chapters in this volume it seems to elevate everyone’s game. Chapter after chapter offers an insightful analysis of how intrapsychic and interpersonal processes (and their interaction) give rise to the complex, nuanced, and diverse social behavior we see around us every day. The full range of what social psychology has to offer is on display here – from evolutionary to cognitive to social-cultural perspectives, and from current takes on classic theories to entirely new approaches – and this book should stand for quite some time as a valuable resource for students and researchers interested in the underpinnings of social life.” - Tom Gilovich, Cornell University, Ithaca, USA “Forgas and company (in this case Klaus Fiedler and Constantine Sedikides) have done it again! This time, putting out a must-have volume of recent converging and diverging thoughts and evidence on the relationship between social thought and social behavior with a stellar list of fresh and seasoned contributors.” - Jim Blascovich, University of California, Santa Barbara, USA Click here for more information or to order online

“This volume poignantly illustrates the richness and diversity of the social cognition paradigm in application to a broad variety of psychological phenomena. Authored by stellar theorists and researchers, chapters in this book offer the reader insights into the problems, methods, and conceptual frameworks that define cutting-edge research in personality and social psychology. Another landmark volume in this important series, and a must-read for everyone interested in current directions and advances on fundamental psychological problems.” - Arie W. Kruglanski, Distinguished University

Professor, University of Maryland, College Park, USA The connection between mental and social life remains one of the most intriguing topics in all of psychology. This book reviews some of the most recent advances in research exploring the links between how people think and behave in interpersonal situations.

The Specialization of Function Cognitive and Neural Perspectives on Modularity

Edited by Bradford Mahon and Jessica Cantlon, both, University of Rochester, NY, USA A Special Issue of Cognitive Neuropsychology

Functional specialization is a property of biological systems generally. A unifying theme that cuts across all research areas and techniques in the cognitive and brain sciences is whether there is specialization of function at levels of processing that are ‘abstracted away’ from sensory inputs and motor outputs. The articles collected together within this issue advance our understanding of the roles of modularity and functional specialization in deriving inferences about the structure of the mind from behavior in normal and brain damaged individuals, functional neuroimaging, computational modeling, development, and the study of individual differences.

Although sport is played with the body, it is won in the mind. Inspired by this idea, the second edition of this popular textbook provides a comprehensive critical introduction to sport and exercise psychology – a discipline that is concerned with the theory and practice of helping athletes to do their best when it matters the most. The book is organized into four sections. Part one investigates the nature, foundations and current status of the discipline. Part two reviews the latest research findings on motivation, anxiety, concentration, mental imagery and expertise in athletes. Part three examines group processes and team dynamics. Finally, part four explores exercise behaviour and the psychology of injury rehabilitation. Each chapter contains specially designed critical thinking exercises to encourage the student to explore the deeper issues, and also features an

invaluable list of suggestions for independent research projects by students. Instructors who adopt the book will be able to access a wealth of online teaching resources. The text has been extensively re-written and updated with new material to take account of hot topics such as neuroscience and motor imagery, as well as issues such as ‘grunting’ in tennis, the psychology of penalty shootouts, mindfulness training as a concentration technique, the effects of music on physical activity, and ‘exer-gaming’ – the use of computer games to increase physical activity and exercise. Written in a lively, accessible style, the book is brimful of vivid contemporary examples and insights from the world’s leading athletes, to provide a compelling bridge between theory and practice for undergraduate and postgraduate students of sport psychology, health psychology, sport science, physical education, kinesiology and leisure management.

“Thinking and Reasoning provides a masterly overview of how our minds understand and solve complex problems. Manktelow has written a clear and lucid book describing the state of the art in psychological understanding of key topics in deduction, propositional reasoning, hypothesis testing, thinking about risk and probability, and decision making. Compelling examples illustrate fundamental principles, and numerous practical applications are described. This book will be a valuable source for students and researchers.” David Shanks, Professor of Psychology, University College London, UK “Thinking and Reasoning is Professor Ken Manktelow’s follow-up to his excellent textbook that was the mainstay of Thinking and Reasoning courses for over 10 years. The book introduces the reader to the major new developments that have occurred in the intervening years that many argue amounts to a new paradigm in reasoning research. As in the previous work, Ken leads the reader safely through this sometimes complex material with his characteristic wit and style.” - Mike Oaksford, Professor of Psychology, Birkbeck College, University of London, UK The area of psychological research reviewed in this book is one that is not only increasing in popularity in college

curricula, but is also making an ever larger impact on the world outside the classroom. Drawing upon research originally cited in Ken Manktelow’s highly successful publication Reasoning and Thinking, this completely rewritten textbook reflects on the revolutionary changes that have occurred in the field in recent years, stemming from the huge expansion in research output, as well as new methods and explanations, and the appearance of numerous books on the subject aimed at the popular market. The main areas covered are probability judgment, deductive and inductive reasoning, decision making, hypothetical thinking and rationality. In each case, the material is almost entirely new, with topics such as the new paradigm in reasoning research, causal reasoning and counterfactual thinking appearing for the first time. The book also presents an extended treatment of decision making research, and contains a chapter on individual and cultural influences on thinking. Thinking and Reasoning provides a detailed, integrated and approachable treatment of this area of cognitive psychology, and is ideal reading for intermediate and advanced undergraduate students; indeed, for anyone interested in how we draw conclusions and make choices. CONTENTS Preface. 1. Judging and Thinking about Probability. 2. The Study of Reasoning: Classic Research. 3. Reasoning with Propositions. 4. Reasoning and Meaning. 5. Explaining Reasoning: The Classic Approaches. 6. Explaining Reasoning: The ‘New Paradigm’. 7. Hypothetical Thinking: Induction and Testing. 8. Decision Making: Preference and Prospects. 9. Decisions in Context. 10. Reasoning, Thinking and You.

Transcending Taboos

A Moral and Psychological Examination of Cyberspace Garry Young, Nottingham Trent University, UK and Monica Whitty, University of Leicester, UK “This book provides a thorough examination of the moral and ethical implications of online versus offline behaviour; the philosophical analysis of moral judgement regarding online versus offline behavior is particularly interesting and illuminating.” - Richard C. Sherman, Professor Emeritus, Miami University, USA “The conceptual issues addressed in this book are very important and fascinating. I don’t know of any book like this one; it is unique.” - John Suler, Department of Psychology, Rider University, USA

Cyberspace is composed of a multitude of different spaces where users can represent themselves in many divergent ways. Why in a video game, is it more acceptable to murder or maim than rape? After all, in each case, it is only pixels that are being assaulted. This book avoids wrestling with the common question of whether the virtual violation of real-world taboos is right or wrong, and instead provides a theoretical framework that helps us understand why such distinctions are typically made, and explores the psychological impact of violating offline taboos within cyberspace.

CONTENTS 1. Introduction. Part 1. Should Cyberspace be a Space Where, Virtually, Anything is Permissible? 2. Virtual Immediacy: Changing the Contingency. 3. Disgust: A Measure of Moral Wisdom or Moral Fallibility? 4. Obscenity: A Measure of Offence or Depravity? 5. The Passive Voyeur: Where’s the Harm in Looking? 6. Virtual Emotions: Addressing the Paradox of Fiction. 7. On the Nature of Play: Cyberspace as a Virtual Playground. 8. Single-Player Games: What is and, Perhaps What Should Never Be. 9. Multiplayer Games: Are We All Agreed? Part 2. The Nature and Authenticity of Selves Within Cyberspace. 10. Disembodiment: A Meeting of Minds. 11. Embodiment: Possible Selves and Cyber-Relations. 12. Progressive Embodiment: The Supermorphic Persona. Part 3. Psychological Parity and Changes to the Self. 13. Violent Games: Where’s the Harm in Playing? 14. Psychological Parity: Coping with Altered Contingencies. 15. Identity and Interpretation: Repercussion for Parity and Potential Harm. 16. Transcending Taboos: The Way Forward.

The authors discuss such online areas as: •

‘Reality’ sites depicting taboo images

Social networking websites and online chatrooms

Online dating websites

Video game content.

This book considers whether there are some interactions that should not be permissible even virtually. It also examines how we might be able to cope with the potential moral freedoms afforded by cyberspace, and who might be vulnerable to such freedoms of action and representation within this virtual space.

Translation of Thought to Written Text While Composing Advancing Theory, Knowledge, Research Methods, Tools, and Applications

Edited by Michel Fayol, Université Blaise-Pascale, Clérmont-Ferrand, France, M. Denis Alamargot, Université de Poitiers, France and Virginia Berninger, University of Washington, Seattle, USA “Panoramic in scope, theoretically dense, and finely detailed, this book is must reading for every writing researcher. It is a state-of-the-art resource that will support for many years to come professionals interested in advancing the knowledge of writing processes and improving instructional practices at all levels.” Paul M. Rogers, George Mason University, USA

writing; and make the case that translation is a higher-order executive function that is fundamental to the writing process.

“This book represents a major leap forward in our understanding of the translation processes involved in writing. The international and interdisciplinary set of authors present a critical outlook on research about translation that encompasses recent advances in both theory and methods. This allows the reader to gain a detailed and very up-to-date appreciation of the importance of translation to the development of writing.” - Vince Connelly, Oxford Brookes University, UK

This volume provides a rich resource for student, theorists, and empirical researchers in cognitive psychology, linguistics, and education; and teachers and clinicians who can use the research in their work.

“This fascinating new book brings together disparate lines of research on translation processes in writing to create new insights. Translation – the empty box in the original Hayes and Flower model of writing – is where cognitive representations and language merge to create text and, thus, is central to understanding writing. This book should be required reading for every serious student of writing.” - Charles MacArthur, University of Delaware, USA Translation of cognitive representations into written language is one of the most important processes in writing. This volume provides a long-awaited updated overview of the field. Click here for more information or to order online

The contributors discuss each of the commonly used research methods for studying translation; theorize about the nature of the cognitive and language representations and cognitive/linguistic transformation mechanisms involved in translation during

The book also reviews the application of research to practice – that is, the translation of the research findings in education and the work-world for individuals who interact with others using written language to communicate ideas.

Using a Positive Lens to Explore Social Change and Organizations Building a Theoretical and Research Foundation

Edited by Karen Golden-Biddle, Boston University, USA and Jane E. Dutton, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, USA Series in Organization and Management

“This is a very important book that opens up new arenas and vistas for organizational studies. Its key message that social change and organizations are deeply connected is one that we all need to hear and deal with. Its concern with critical social issues of sustainability, healthcare, poverty and lowwage work is, again, something that we all need to hear and deal with. The book provides a powerful voice for using a positive lens to further our understanding and stimulate our imagination. It will be a significant addition to my bookshelf.” - C.R. (Bob) Hinings, Department of Strategic Management and Organization, University of Alberta, Canada “This is a super book. It moves beyond traditional perspectives to give a fresh impetus to understanding social change and organizations. The ‘positive lens’ has reinvigorated organizational scholarship in recent years and this book showcases the strengths of that approach.” Royston Greenwood, Telus Chair of Strategic Management, School of Business, University of Alberta, Canada Click here for more information or to order online

“This groundbreaking work promises to add a new positive dimension to understanding and enabling social and organizational change processes. Its diverse collection of innovative chapters and stunning applications of positive scholarship make this a must read for anyone interested in positive psychology, organizational development, and social change.” - Stewart I. Donaldson, Dean & Chair of Psychology, School of Behavioral and Organizational Sciences, Claremont Graduate University, USA “This book will make a contribution to the positive organizational research and will emphasize the role of

organizations in social change, linking organizations research to important problems in society and humanity. We clearly need more research on this topic.” - Anne Tsui, Management, Arizona State University, USA “This book will open new and important research frontiers and is destined to be a ‘must have’ volume for scholars and informed practitioners interested in examining the processes by which organizations create and sustain social change in the environment. For too long, organizational scholars have taken a limited approach to the interface between organizations and their environments. The time is absolutely right for this book.” - Belle Rose Ragins, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, USA “The major social changes of the last decade, such as the shift to an enhanced security state and the growth of a risk society, the crisis of casino capitalism, the socialization of private financial institutions’ debt, and the fiscal crisis of the North Atlantic nations, as well as global warming and the inadequacy of policy responses to it, should all be spurs to positive thinking. Interesting times that are more positive would be welcome and in this volume the contributors all seek to accentuate the positive in individuals and organizations making change for good happen.” - Stewart Clegg, Research Professor and Director of the Key Centre for Management and Organisation Studies, University of Technology Sydney Business School, Australia How can application of a positive lens to understanding social change and organizations enrich and elaborate theory and practice? This is the core question that inspired this book. It is a question that brought together a diverse and talented

group of researchers interested in change and organizations in different problem domains (sustainability, healthcare, poverty alleviation and education). The contributors to this book bring different theoretical lenses to the question of social change and organizations. Some are anchored in more macro accounts of how and why social change processes occur, while others approach the question from a more psychological or social psychological perspective. Many of the chapters in the book travel across levels of analyses, making their accounts of social change good examples of multi-level theorizing. Some scholars are practiced and immersed in thinking about organizational phenomena through a positive lens; for others it was a total adventure in trying on a new set of glasses. However, connecting all contributing authors was an excitement and willingness to explore new insights and new angles on how to explain and cultivate social change within or across organizations. This edited volume will be of interest to an international community who seek to understand how organizations and people can generate positive outcomes for society. Students and researchers in organizational behavior, management, positive psychology, leadership and corporate responsibility will find this book of interest.

Workplace Bullying Symptoms and Solutions

Edited by Noreen Tehrani, Employee Support Training and Development, Twickenham, UK Is bullying really that bad? Why do some people just watch it happening?

A Mosaic of New Perspectives Edited by Elena L. Grigorenko, Yale University, USA, Elisa Mambrino, Licensed Psychologist, Greenwich, CT, USA and David D. Preiss, Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile, Santiago, Chile “This volume about writing is different from any book on writing I am aware about in three ways. First, most books on writing are somewhat narrowly focused on writing, as if it is a phenomenon that exists in a vacuum. The chapters in this book embed writing in the larger context of development, and in doing so, enhance the importance of the aspects of writing that are considered. Second, the breadth of the topics covered is remarkable. Third, and most important, this if the first book about writing I have had a hard time putting down. This is a must have book for writing researchers and will be useful in the classroom.” - Richard Wagner, The Florida State University, USA

This book captures the diversity and richness of writing as it relates to different forms of abilities, skills, competencies, and expertise. Psychologists, educators, researchers, and practitioners in neighboring areas are interested in exploring how writing develops and in what manner this development can be fostered, but they lack a handy, unified, and comprehensive source of information to satisfy their interest. The goal of this book is to fill this void by reflecting on the phenomenon of writing from a developmental perspective. It contains an integrated set of chapters devoted to issues of writing: how writing develops, how it is and should be taught and how writing paths of development differ across writing genres. Specifically, the book addresses typologies of writing; pathways of the development of writing skills; stages of the development of writing; individual differences in the acquisition of writing skills; writing ability and disability; teaching writing; and the development and demonstration of expertise in writing.
