The Routledge Modular Psychology series is a completely new approach to introductory level psychology, tailor made to the new modular style of teaching.
Each short book covers a topic in more detail than any large textbook can, allowing teacher and student to select material exactly to suit any particular course or project.
The books have been written especially for those students new to higher level study, whether at school home, college or university.
