Zedeck, Sheldon, Ed.
APA Books® announces the "APA Handbook of Industrial and Organizational Psychology"--the first offering in an new reference series covering core and emerging subdisciplines, the "APA Handbooks in Psychology." I/O Psychology is both a science/practice and an applied/basic research discipline. Appropriately, the "APA Handbook of Industrial and Organizational Psychology" offers an in depth examination of the types of behavioral and structural issues that I/O psychologists study every day, from both a theoretical and applied perspective. It explores a natural progression, from how problems are diagnosed to how research is conducted to generate answers to those problems to how interventions are implemented and, finally, to how they are evaluated. It examines what is currently known--including basic historical reviews--and identifies the most pertinent sources of information in both the core and emerging literatures. It pinpoints practical issues, probes unresolved and controversial topics, and looks at future theoretical, research, and practice trends. One of the givens in the field is that, when an organization or employer attempts to affect one aspect of behavior--for example, job satisfaction--the organization or employer is likely to affect several other areas, such as compensation, supervision, performance review, and the like. Accordingly, through extensive cross-referencing to other chapters, individual chapters attempt to acknowledge the links with other topics in order to present an integrated approach to the field, both within and across volumes. The reader will thus achieve a clearer understanding of the complexities of each topic, and, more globally, a clearer understanding of the complexities of organizations and of the people within them. The volume titles indicate a particular sequence that informs content: (Volume 1, Building and Developing the Organization, Volume 2, Selecting and Developing Members for the Organization, and Volume 3, Maintaining, Expanding, and Contracting the Organization); flow naturally from issues concerned with designing, building, and developing the structure of the organization into issues related to selecting the organization's members, their roles, and issues that pertain to maintaining and ensuring the viability of the organization. Also included in the discussion are issues concerned with growing, expanding, and, even, contracting the organization. The goal of the entire set is to provide the reader with a well-rounded understanding of the complexities and intricacies of trying to study and affect behavior within and between organizations. The tables of contents for the volumes provide the following: Volume 1: Building and Developing the Organization is divided into three sections and Section I, Foundational Issues in Industrial and Organizational Psychology, presents the following chapters: (1) A Historical Survey of Research and Practice in Industrial and Organizational Psychology (Andrew J.
