Description : This study looks at the artists, designers and writers who formed the Independent Group in the early 1950s including such influential figures as Richard Hamilton, Eduardo Paolozzi, Nigel Henderson, William Turnball, Rayner Banham and Alison and Peter Smithson. As a group they aimed to raise the status of popular objects and icons within modern visual culture. The development of the Independent Group is mapped out against the changing nature of modernism during the Cold War era, as well as the impact of mass consumption on post-war British society. In this book, Massey examines the cultural context of the formation of the Group, covering the founding of the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, the meanings of modernism, and the creation of a national identity. Key exhibitions such as "Parallel of Life and Art" and "This Is Tomorrow" are also examined.
Description : This guide lays out the computational methods for "d" with a variety of designs including factorial ANOVA, ANCOVA and repeated measures ANOVA; "d" divides the observed effect by the standard deviation of the dependent variable. Throughout, the computations are illustrated on the same data, a comprehensive set of simulated observations on air traffic controllers. The authors also raise important theoretical issues including a discussion of "off-factor" in arriving at effect size as well as questions of research practice.
Description : "The Long Front of Culture is the first book-length treatment of the exhibition designs of the Independent Group and its key members: artists Richard Hamilton, Nigel Henderson, and Eduardo Paolozzi; architects Alison and Peter Smithson; critics Lawrence Alloway and Reyner Banham; and many others. A pivotal research collaborative united by a shared interest in technology, popular culture, and lost histories of art, the IG came together in the 1950s at London's Institute of Contemporary Arts. There, as the story goes, they first put into practice a non-judgmental approach to the objects and pleasures of consumer culture that we now recognize as Pop Art. But if the IG gave rise to Pop, it also, Kevin Lotery argues, invented a form of research and experimentation that far exceeded the Pop label, one that could embrace all the sciences, technologies, aesthetic forms, and military-industrial discourses conditioning what they saw as a new chapter in the history of culture after the Second World War. They named this new phase the "long front" in order to get at the ways all visual production of the postwar period-from X-ray crystallography and painting down to science fiction and automotive design-seemed leveled within the non-hierarchical sameness of a horizontal field or "front." In his study, Lotery argues that the IG turned to exhibition design-that most cross-disciplinary technique of research, display, and spectator involvement-as the only medium capable of incorporating, reconfiguring, and ultimately, reimagining this expansive front of technologically-aided appliances, advertisements, films, and consumerist fantasies into new spatial set-ups and experiences"--
Description : The Second Edition of Paul G. Nestor and Russell K. Schutt’s successful and unique Research Methods in Psychology: Investigating Human Behavior draws from substantive research stories to illustrate how research is presented while systematically unifying the entire research process within a conceptual framework. This accessible text examines engaging research studies and examples, considering research ethics throughout. “This is a great text that emphasizes the important concepts within research methods. The resources are excellent; they incorporate up-to-date research and technology and introduce the student to empirical articles, and the information is presented in a way that challenges the student to apply the material.” —Maria Pacella, Kent State University “The text is comprehensive. It covers a wide variety of information without being overwhelming. This is a very good textbook for an introductory course in research methods. I like that its focus is on psychological research specifically.” —Angela M. Heads, Prairie View A&M University
Description : In this important new collection of essays, Jonathan Sklar argues that the founding tension between Freud's commitment to interpretation and Ferenczi's extra parameter of 'being in the experience' has a central place/key role to play in contemporary psychoanalytic debate, and that this tension can best be understood by returning to the place of trauma in psychoanalysis. Taking this debate into the heart of the clinical setting, a set of extensive, penetrating and often disturbing case studies examine the evocation of the real as early trauma for many patients and its subsequent mental development - a case of schizophrenia, a man with a severe Tic (spasmodic Torticollis), and a neurotic with a somatic resistance to ending a long analysis.

Description : With an approach that does not require formal mathematics (equations are accompanied by verbal explanations), this textbook provides a clear introduction to widely used topics in multivariate statistics, including Multiple Regression, Discriminant Analysis, MANOVA, Factor Analysis, and Binary Logistic Regression. Each chapter presents a complete empirical research example to illustrate the application of a specific method, such as Multiple Regression. Although SPSS examples are used throughout the book, the conceptual material will be helpful for users of different programs. Each chapter has a glossary and comprehension questions.
Description : This book is meant to be a supplement to a more detailed statistics textbook, such as that recommended for a statistics course in the social sciences. Also, as a reference book to refresh your memory about statistical concepts.
