Praise for the Series "In 1999... the International Review was reinvigorated. Under the editorship of Laraine Masters Glidden and a new editorial board, volumes have been published more often, with each issue having 8 to 10 integrative chapters. In contrast to earlier years, contributors to the past few volumes include more international workers, reflecting the burgeoning interest in mental retardation behavioral research in Britain, Australia, New Zealand, and other countries. Glidden has also begun mixing issues with diverse content and those devoted to single topic (e.g., Vol. 23, in 2001, on behavioral research in autism)... in these volumes one sees evidence of a vibrant, diverse field." —CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY "This book is highly detailed and heavily referenced." —BIOSIS "Belongs on the shelves of every serious student and researcher whose focal interest is the retarded." —JOURNAL OF BIOLOGICAL PSYCHOLOGY "Practically every article is of interest for psychologists who are involved with mental retardation." —CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY
