In this innovative approach to the Intro Psychology course, authors John Cacioppo and Laura Freberg present psychology as an integrative science that is highly relevant for students of all majors. The authors have kept a familiar chapter structure, providing an easy roadmap for the introductory psychology course, but the similarities with other approaches to introductory psychology end there. Integration extends in two directions, highlighting connections within psychology as well as between psychology and other disciplines. The writing and features are smart and engaging, and consistently illustrate the benefit of using multiple perspectives within psychology. Cacioppo and Freberg offer the best science possible, including exciting new research findings likely to expand students' understanding of psychology as a scientific field of study. Features and images coordinate with and enhance the text, providing many additional opportunities for critical thinking and connecting ideas. Psychology is evolving into an integrative, multidisciplinary field, and this text offers an opportunity to teach all of psychology in one place and at one time.

The life of a 1960s psychology student. This first volume of the "Through a Hedge Backwards" memoir series captures the life of a student of psychology at Queensland University in ultra-conservative Brisbane in the swinging sixties. The author has an intimate knowledge of psychology in Australia and provides an insider's view of the development of the profession through its adolescent years. The book delivers a critical examination of the behind-the-scenes manoeuvrings to resolve the serious issues facing the profession, told against the backdrop of the social history of the times. This critique of the history and politics of Australian psychology is leavened with controversial theories, anecdotes of student life, street marches, wild parties and the life of a singer-songwriter. And Ian has a secret problem. He is uncoordinated, half-blind, dyslexic and can't hold his drink. His struggle to overcome these hidden weaknesses is woven through his story with a light but thoughtful touch.

For the serious student of life here in the Earth School, this work may help you push your own boundaries of beliefs, perceptions and assumptions and lead you into a deeper course of inquiry within the heart and soul of you. It's in large part why you are here. So, I've gathered together three works that explore different aspects of consciousness with a small "c" and along with painting a different perspective of the big "C" in terms of the Cosmic Consciousness, Source or God, however it is you might like to reference it. It is my contribution towards helping to create that little instruction book we all could use. It is my greatest hope that you might find something of value, something to make you think or something that might give you pause to realize you are so much more than you've been taught by conventional religion and various courses of earliest teachings from elementary school and beyond.
