The Revisiting the Classic Studies in Psychology series critically explores the legacy of the original works, sparking curiosity, encouraging reflection and challenging norms.
Edited by leading scholars in their field and written by researchers at the cutting edge of these developments, the books help instructors and students decolonise the psychology curriculum one study at a time. Each chapter dives into a different pioneering study, analysing its theoretical and empirical impact, discussing its ethical implications and unravelling how research has advanced in the years since.
The series helps students
Ask challenging questions
Engage at a deeper level with key studies and theories
Learn in context from leading scholars, researchers and even classic authors
Think critically about developments in psychology
Discuss the legacy, ethics and impact of each study
"Like the very best guidebooks, the authors set the classic studies in context, helping the reader to understand why each study was conducted and how it was received by its contemporary audience. Just as important, they discuss the legacy of each study, showing how it opened up lines of theorizing and empirical research that have helped to create the vibrant and socially relevant discipline that we know today."
