About the Book

Psychology 2e is designed to meet scope and sequence requirements for the single-semester introduction to psychology course. The book offers a comprehensive treatment of core concepts, grounded in both classic studies and current and emerging research. The text also includes coverage of the DSM-5 in examinations of psychological disorders. Psychology incorporates discussions that reflect the diversity within the discipline, as well as the diversity of cultures and communities across the globe.

The second edition contains detailed updates to address comments and suggestions from users. Significant improvements and additions were made in the areas of research currency, diversity and representation, and the relevance and recency of the examples. Many concepts were expanded or clarified, particularly through the judicious addition of detail and further explanation where necessary. Finally, the authors addressed the replication issues in the psychology discipline, both in the research chapter and where appropriate throughout the book.

Changes made in Psychology 2e are described in the preface to help instructors transition to the second edition. The first edition of Psychology by OpenStax is available in web view here.

This is the highest-quality affordably-priced printed OpenStax textbook available. As OpenStax's premier print partner, XanEdu prints all OpenStax textbooks in hardcover full-color versions, and a paperback version with B&W interior pages. The hardcover and paperback versions are exactly the same as the free OpenStax digital textbook which is available for free digital download at the OpenStax website, but as many students prefer the convenience of a printed textbook, we work directly with OpenStax to provide affordable print textbook options for students.
