Rich in reader-friendly features and up-to-the-minute research, Spencer Rathus's Ninth Edition of PSYCHOLOGY: CONCEPTS AND CONNECTIONS (previously known as PSYCHOLOGY IN THE NEW MILLENNIUM) makes your students' introduction to psychology a meaningful, personal experience. Rathus connects the core concepts of psychology to the events and issues students encounter every day. The book explains classic theories and the latest discoveries in a clear, accessible style intended to reach out to students-without sacrificing Rathus's commitment to showing psychology as the rigorous science that it is. Throughout the text, you'll find an emphasis on diversity and expanded coverage of the evolutionary perspective, plus numerous references to the timeliest research available. And, the text's proven active learning system, PQ4R (Preview, Question, Read, Reflect, Review, and Recite), incorporated into every chapter, seamlessly integrates reading and studying. In addition, Rathus's text features the most integrated multi-platform media package available, with the free student CD-ROM, the full Web site that features Self-Study Assessments (pre- and post-tests), and interactive versions of features from the text-all tightly connected to the text itself to give students the a powerful, comprehensive introduction to psychology.
