Connect with science. Connect with students. Connect with Feist and Rosenberg's Psychology. In Psychology: Making Connections, Greg Feist and Erika Rosenberg provide the tools for students to make meaningful connections with the material encompassed in Introductory Psychology while still presenting psychology as a scientific endeavor. With its focus on connections, Feist helps your students to understand both the discipline and concepts of psychology as well as psychology’s relevance to their lives. Feist provides you with the science you are seeking while bringing it alive for your students in an accessible way. By challenging students to make connections between what they are reading and learning about in class and the world around them outside the classroom, Psychology: Making Connections fosters students' critical thinking skills. At the same time, the authors consistently reinforce the idea that science is a process and not just a collection of resulting outcomes to be memorized. In doing so, they bring to life the names and experiments on the page and vividly illustrate the human element in the scientific method.

Challenging Assumptions. Just because we “think” something doesn’t make it true. Feist’s accessible approach to science helps students challenge their assumptions, understand research, and recognize that in Psychology, it’s not all black and white. Virtually all students enter Introductory Psychology with preconceived notions—many of them incorrect. Psychology: Perspectives and Connections is designed to move students beyond what may seem obvious to them, to have them reevaluate the thoughts and beliefs they bring to the course. Feist & Rosenberg challenge students: Don’t believe everything you think! Students are encouraged to think critically and question preconceived notions, putting their ideas—and the ideas of others—to the test and understand that no one perspective tells the whole story.

India and Turkey, Asia Minor and the Subcontinent of Hindustan, and the Ottomans and Mughals have had shared histories of contact, engagement, and dialogue over the centuries. Much of northern India was under the control of rulers from Central Asia since at least the thirteenth century. Startling glimpses of the presence of Turkic-speaking peoples from Central Asia are still visible, for example, in north Indian material cultures - languages, cuisine, religion, architecture, and medicine.? This book places the Indian subcontinent side by side with the Turkic-speaking world, both past and present, in order to understand one geographical context in relation to the other. The juxtaposition of the two countries throws up some startling commonalities as well as considerable differences, and it is the variations as well as the similarities that allow for comparability. By exploring historical connections and providing a comparative perspective in terms of spirituality and religion, social movements, political economy, and foreign policy, the book initiates productive cross-cultural conversations, allowing concerns from one location to illuminate the other. The book is split into five parts: History and Memory, Nationhood and Leadership, Secularism, Debating Development, and claiming the City. The first comparison of the Subcontinent and present-day Turkey, the book emphasizes the importance of cross-regional comparative analysis in order to overcome some of the pitfalls of area-focused analysis. Filling a gap in the existing literature, it will be of interest to scholars in various disciplines, including politics, religion, history, urbanization, and development in the Middle East and Asia.
