The 3rd edition of Psychology by Martin, Carlson and Buskist continues to combine comprehensiveness with a fresh, lively and accessible writing style.  The text presents both classic and contemporary research from Europe and around the world to give students a rounded, global picture of what psychologists are discovering.  Offering a rigourous and critical coverage, this successful text introduces students to the central concepts, ideas, theories and findings in every major branch of psychology.

With an emphasis on critical thinking throughout, Psychology 3/e shows how psychology can be used in to address everyday problems and issues, such as aggression in the workplace, rehabilitation after brain injury and the effect of sleep loss on driving.  Richly supported throughout by examples and photos drawn from Europe and the wider-world, this highly illustrated text will stimulate interest and actively engage students.
