  • Introduction to Psychology - 1st Canadian Edition

    Author(s): Jennifer Walinga, Royal Roads University, Charles Stangor, University of Maryland
    Date: Oct 20, 2014

    Author(s): Charles Stangor
    Date: Oct 20, 2014

At the same time, the book maintains content and conceptual rigor, with a strong focus o...[more]
