"Sponsored by the International Association of Applied Psychology, this encyclopedia is an excellent general guide to applied psychology. Its 300 articles range from "Academic Failure, Prevention of," through "Cognitive Aging" and "Personality Assessment," to "Youth, Employment of." The signed articles, arranged alphabetically, examine both the theoretical bases of their subjects and the application of theory and research to practical problems. Each begins with an outline, glossary of terms, and brief summary paragraph and ends with cross-references to other articles and suggestions for further reading in secondary sources, review articles, and important research papers. All are clearly written and detailed and vary in length from 4 to 16 pages. The illustrations, in black and white, include figures, tables, graphs, and examples of forms, scales, and questionnaires. The target audience ranges from research professionals and practitioners to students and general readers. Articles may be located through the table of contents or a detailed subject index. Although some topics are covered in other reference books in general psychology, Spielberger's work focuses on applied psychology. A roster of editorial advisers, section editors, and contributors from many countries, with current affiliations (largely universities) noted, is printed at the beginning of each volume. Speilberger [sic] (Univ. of South Florida) has served as president of both the International Association of Applied Psychology and the American Psychological Association. Highly recommended. General readers, students at all levels, faculty, and practitioners."
