Building on the success of the market-leading and award-winning previous editions, Psychology: 4th Australian and New Zealand Edition has been thoroughly updated to provide comprehensive coverage of contemporary local and international data, research and examples in the dynamic field of psychology. A key strength of the text and its extensive online accompanying resources continues to be its integrated coverage of cross-cultural and indigenous psychology, a requirement for the professional accreditation of Psychology degree programs. The text and its associated resources are ideal for both Psychology majors and those taking only a one-semester study of Psychology.
