More About the Author

Wendy Stainton Rogers is a professor in Health Psychology at the Open University and a visiting professor in Gender & Health at Leeds Metropolitan. She's also got an alter-ego, being a 'bit' of Beryl Curt, a quite fascinating author who, despite suffering from congenital acorporality, has (like Wendy herself) been making trouble for psychology for more years than either are prepared to admit.

But it's troublemaking with a purpose: asking difficult questions, unsettling things we take for granted and generally challenging mainstream psychology's smug claims to offer a reliable, factual science of human behaviour.

Wendy's books span a wide range of topics reflecting a rather motley career across a variety of fields. All share, though, a critical approach and a social justice agenda with a wicked sense of humour that delights in debunking pomposity and academic snobbery.

Product Description

About the Author

Wendy Stainton Rogers is Senior Lecturer in the School of Health and Social Welfare at the Open University. She has written extensively over a range of topics, including child care, child protection and critical psychology, particularly critical health psychology. She has a growing interest in theory, and is on the editorial board of Theory and Psychology.

Rex Stainton Rogers was, until his death in 1999, a lecturer in the Department of Psychology at the University of Reading. His publications and research were very wide ranging within the field of critical psychology. He will be best remembered, however, as a stimulating speaker and a devoted and inspirational doctoral supervisor.

I bought this from the marketplace and it was at a really good price. the condition arrived in what I could only say was brand new so very pleased with that. the content is good, engrossing and takes a few reads to understand but one you get into the literature its a really good read.
