BPS Core Textbooks Series

About the Series

Routledge in partnership with British Psychological Society are pleased to present their flagship textbook program, the BPS Core Textbooks Series. Aimed at a global undergraduate readership, these volumes are designed to be core texts for course adoption, covering all key subject areas in Psychology.

Diversity, equity and inclusion is at the heart of the series. Each book includes a strong focus on all aspects of diversity, including decolonising the curriculum and an understanding of the value of multiple perspectives. There is also a spotlight on employability, to explain why a grounding in basic theoretical areas is necessary for careers in Psychology. There is also a focus on real-world applications and life skills, to help students explore the use of psychological theory to answer real-world questions. These full colour books include a range of pedagogical features, illustrations and figures, with content to emphasise critical thinking and study skills and the unpicking of pseudoscience.

Books are available in traditional print format, as well as our innovative enhanced eBook format. This includes integrative features such as pop-up keyword definitions, hypertext links to web-based resources, short-answer/open-ended questions, multiple-choice and true/false quizzes and video clips. There is a series website hosting additional digital resources for both students and instructors to tie in with learning objectives.  

The books in the BPS Core Textbooks Series are essential reading in the core areas in any Psychology honours degree or conversion-level course. They are also relevant as secondary reading in related disciplines.
