Most important psychological research is presented in the form of research papers. Students of psychology have long faced the problem of tracking down original research articles, which are generally scattered in hard-to-find journals (where they are usually rendered in tedious academic fashion) or presented in watered-down form in textbooks. In Introducing Psychological Research, Philip Banyard and Andrew Grayson have resolved this dilemma once and for all by providing detailed summaries and background information for sixty-four of the most influential studies in psychology. The collection includes pioneering work by Stanley Milgram, Philip Zimbardo, Henry Tajfel, B.F. Skinner, Niko Tinbergen, Sandra Bem, Carol Gilligan, Sigmund Freud, Albert Bandura, and many others. Among the ground-breaking trials highlighted are Piaget's cognitive approach, the jigsaw technique, the prison simulation, the Robber's Cave, and the Minimal Group Studies.

"This book is designed to help students organize their thinking about psychology at a conceptual level. The focus on behaviour and empiricism has produced a text that is better organized, has fewer chapters, and is somewhat shorter than many of the leading books. The beginning of each section includes learning objectives; throughout the body of each section are key terms in bold followed by their definitions in italics; key takeaways, and exercises and critical thinking activities end each section"--BCcampus website.
