OPENING SKINNER'S BOX

Great Psychological Experiments of the Twentieth Century

By Lauren Slater. This is no dry, academic rehash of research and results—instead, Slater offers lively, witty, suspenseful, flesh-and-blood accounts of ten key psychology experiments and the people involved in them. Presenting dramatically compelling narratives that really underline why these experiments were so important, Slater looks at Skinner and his box, Milgram and obedience to authority, Rosenhan and psychiatric diagnosis, Darley and Latane and group behavior in moments of crisis, Festinger and cognitive dissonance, Harlow's monkeys, the "Rat Park" addiction study, Loftus and false memory, Kandel's sea slugs, and Moniz and psychosurgery. Grades 10 and up. Index. Notes. Norton. 276 pages. ©2004.
