Description

An introductory guide to the discipline of Psychology, the South Asian edition includes in its contents an account of the Indian historical backdrop to psychology and recent developments. Under supervision by Girishwar Mishra, this book forms the perfect foundation for an in depth foray into psychology.

Summary Of The Book

Psychology: South Asian Edition was originally written for American colleges and it was lauded for its engaging narrative structure and comprehensive handling of concepts intimate to the discipline of psychology. The book originally included a number of analogies and elucidations that drew references from popular culture. This made the book much more accessible to students so that they could absorb the material easily. The book also merits the use of near exhaustive research and especially so when it came to the key concepts that are included in the contents. All of this necessarily engages the pedagogy of the book and makes it a must have for all students and enthusiasts of psychology.

Psychology: South Asian Edition has been crafted keeping in mind the Indian subcontinent and therefore has been modified. This has taken place under the tutelage of Delhi University professor, Girishwar Mishra and he has enhanced the book’s value by making it more relevant to Indian students. He has made it a point to include the history and development of psychology through the ages as viewed in the Indian subcontinent. All the examples and illustrations as provided in Psychology have been kept intact and only so reformed in terms of context and indianization. All the examples in the erstwhile edition drew its analogies off American culture and so Mishra has endured in changing them to engaging the Indian ethos.

The book triumphs in its ability to holistically educate students and therefore it presents information to readers with the objective of learning in mind. All theories are shown through a replete assortment of questions. It even includes the possible developments in the future and includes the scope of psychology in terms of career tracking. Because of the clarity and engaging content that is endorsed through the book, it is a good introductory guide for novices and students alike.

Nice book for beginners....

This is a good book for basic knowledge of psychology even for those who don't belong to this field.
Language is easy to understand and text is given in a systematic fashion. Difficult words have their meaning on the same page and references are also given along with a topic(eg. see chapter 9 etc.). So you won't have any problem in understanding any of the topics.
One thing i didn't like about this book is that every topic is covered superficially,so you won't be able to gain much about a spe...
