Psy-Complex in Question traces a series of key debates in and against the psy-complex through critical reviews of twenty-five key texts over the last twenty-five years, with an emphasis on recent critical psychological, psychoanalytic and critical social theory contributions to how we think about human agency and subjectivity. The reviews together set out the unfolding context for the debate, and situate the texts under discussion in the cross-cutting debates that define critical psychology today. It also provides an accessible introduction to how psychoanalysis and social theory, with a particular focus on the work of Jacques Lacan and Slavoj Žižek, bears upon work carried out by a new generation of researchers. Ian Parker's book is written from the perspective of a critical insider to the discipline of psychology, psychoanalysis and social theory, and it will serve as a primer for those new to the ideas searching for compass points and radical arguments, as well as examples of how to write and how not to write a book review.

Complex Cases in Sport Psychology offers instructors and students a unique and novel approach to teaching and learning about sport psychology. The book consists of a series of character-driven narratives—set within the context of a university athletic department—which encourage discussion and critical thinking in order to find solutions to issues such as athletes lacking in motivation, introducing mental skills training programs and improving recruitment. The book begins with a section introducing the teaching cases approach (suggesting further reading and methods for its delivery), the university setting and the issues this context provides for the sport psychologist, and the cast of characters involved. It goes on to detail over twenty cases spread across four parts (organizational performance, team performance, individual performance, and injury and recovery), each based around a piece of theory and including clear learning outcomes, tasks and non-prescriptive guidance on reaching a solution. With online resources which include topical cases, further guidance on the teaching cases approach and an instructor’s manual, this is an essential supplementary resource for any instructor looking to provide experiential learning and encourage critical thinking in their sport psychology classrooms. Covering a full range of psychological issues in a relevant sporting context, it is also an important, hands-on guide to counselling for any upper-level student of sport psychology.

What does psychology have to do with affirmative action? In the author's opinion, questioning the relevance of psychology to an issue such as affirmative action is, unfortunately, not an uncommon query, even among many people within the field of psychology. When most people, both within and outside the field, make an association between psychology and affirmative action, it is in terms of the debate over racial differences in performance on intelligence tests. Thus, the decision to write this book was based upon what was seen as a need to demonstrate and highlight the substantive contribution that psychology can make in terms of improving our understanding of why it is that people respond to affirmative action with a variety of reactions and emotions. The primary goal of this book is to discuss empirical research and theoretical work on affirmative action from a psychological perspective. The intended audience is academics, including undergraduate and graduate students, and social science researchers.

In recent years there has been increased recognition of the weaknesses within orthodox views of psychology, and this has led to a surge in critical approaches to the discipline. Reflecting this trend, "Psychology in Social Context: Issues and Debates" provides an accessible introduction to current thinking and key ideas relating to the field of critical psychology. Taking a distinctive approach to addressing issues in psychology, this thought-provoking text considers a variety of historical controversies in psychology and the ways in which the discipline is embedded within particular socio-historical contexts. The team of authors draws on historical analysis to reveal the ways in which psychology interrelates with social context. Concepts are richly illustrated with many examples of how the discipline has engaged with such controversial social issues as race and IQ, psychology and gender, ethical issues in psychology, parapsychology, and the nature-nurture debate. Provocative and intellectually stimulating, "Psychology in Social Context" provides deep insights into the diverse nature of a discipline and its pursuit of the understanding of the mind and behaviour.

Disciplinary psychology has failed to achieve a coherent conception of human agency. Instead, it oscillates between two differing conceptions of agency that are equally untenable: a scientistic, reductive approach to choice and action, and an instrumental approach that celebrates a romantic notion of free will. This book examines theoretical, philosophical psychology and argues for a historically and socioculturally situated human capacity for choosing and acting in ways not entirely determined by culture and/or biology. The authors present a detailed developmental theory of how agentic capability emerges from the pre-reflective activity of humans in a real physical and social world.

Mark Letteri's Heidegger and the Question of Psychology introduces psychologists and psychotherapists to a number of key ideas proposed by Martin Heidegger-the most influential and controversial philosopher of the 20th century. Letteri's book is at once engaging and informative. Its scope of argument provides readers with a clear and accessible grounding for Heidegger's concerns and their implications for the ways they might think about-and do -psychology. Revealing a depth of scholarly knowledge and acumen, Letteri challenges readers to consider Heidegger's greatest challenge to psychology: to re-construe its dualist and reductive image of the human being. This is a book I unreservedly recommend to all professionals and trainees who view psychology as something more than a technological tool. (Professor Ernesto Spinelli, PhD; Director, ES Associates)
