Book Description

This new title in Routledge’s Major Themes in Education series is a four-volume collection of major works of scholarship. It is an essential successor to an earlier Routledge anthology, Psychology of Education (978-0-415-19302-3) (2000), edited by Peter K. Smith and Anthony D. Pellegrini.

Research in and around psychology and education has experienced dramatic growth in recent years. Psychology of Education (2000) was the first comprehensive collection of the field’s canonical and cutting-edge research, and this new collection takes full account of the many important developments that have taken place since its appearance. Psychology of Education II also includes coverage of areas without the scope of the first collection.

With a full index, together with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Psychology of Education II is an indispensable work of reference.
