Grahame Clark and His Legacy
Editor: Arkadiusz Marciniak and John Coles
Date Of Publication: Jul 2010
Grahame Clark was a major figure in European archaeology for over 50 years, and pioneered work in prehistoric economies and ecology, in science-based archaeology and in a world view of ancient societies. In this book a variety of authorities from Europe and beyond assess these major contributions and provide discussions about Clark's own colleagues and contemporaries, his major archaeological themes and his varied approaches, and his world-wide contacts and travels. The papers provide surveys and opinions on Clark's role in the development of archaeology in the 20th century, and the basis that it provided for archaeological work of today. The book will be a valuable source of evidence, ideas and references for scholars interested in the development of the discipline.

From Teaching Psychology around the World: Volume 3
“McCarthy states in the preface that the book intends to 'be a current overview of teaching and learning psychology around the world', and this intention is certainly met. While no book can detail absolutely everything going on in psychology teaching and learning, this book really does give a comprehensive overview of current practice in different countries, and also looks to the future in terms of internationalising teaching across the globe. The book is a must-have for those with a keen interest in psychology teaching and learning who want to be kept abreast of current happenings in the field, perhaps for inspiration for their own teaching or just for interest. As academics, we need to be inspired to produce exciting, innovative ways of passing on our enthusiasm for psychology to others, and this book really highlights that through its collection of teaching practices from across the world.”
