Essential Psychology: A Core Textbook offers both the specialist and non-specialist Psychology student the perfect companion at an affordable price. It represents a fresh alternative to the range of expensive, American-oriented titles on the market that are full of topics you need but also many you don't need on your course.

The textbook is:
- stylish and presented in full color
- has an abundance of learning features to make your studies enjoyable and fruitful
- includes a companion website (www.sagepub.co.uk./banyard) with a host of lecturer and student-focused material to assist both teaching and learning
