This revised title in the Magill's Choice series features 127 essays.
One-third of these topics did not appear in the previous edition of
Psychology Basics. The remaining two-thirds have the same or similar
titles but were either newly commissioned for the revision of the
larger encyclopedia or feature updated text--bringing them in line with
the most recent edition of the American Psychiatric Association's
Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders: DSM-IV-TR
(2000)--and "Sources for Further Study" sections offering the latest
editions and scholarship. Additions to the Revised Edition include new
top matter, tailored subheadings guiding readers through the text,
photographs, helpful lists of diagnostic criteria from the DSM-IV-TR,
and an appendix Biographical List of
with brief profiles of major figures in the field, both past and
present. As a result, Psychology Basics, Revised Edition supersedes the
previous Psychology Basics and should prove to be even more valuable.
