Born gay : the psychobiology of sex orientation by Glenn D Wilson( Book )

11 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and held by 967 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Are people born gay, or does upbringing or even conscious personal choice play a part? The ongoing row between gay-rights activists and the conservative lobby over this burning question has now raged for many years. But the science that both groups employ in their arguments is not merely outmoded but often fallacious." "Since the work of Simon LeVay and Dean Hamer in the early 1990s into the biological causes of homosexuality, a tremendous amount of new research has been carried out by scientists, who now understand a great deal more about the biology of sexual attraction." "But how much does the non-scientific community really know about this research or understand its far-reaching implications? Born Gay is the first book for the general reader to provide a summary of this new research, much of which has been undertaken by the authors, Glenn Wilson and Qazi Rahman. They provide new evidence that sexual orientation is largely innate and demystify much of the confusion about such frequently misused terms as 'the gay brain' and 'the gay gene'. They show that attempts to find a sociological cause for homosexuality have little foundation and argue that popular efforts to 'blame' parents or teachers for a child's homosexuality are futile and unjust."--Jacket
The psychology of conservatism by Glenn D Wilson( Book )

23 editions published between 1973 and 2014 in English and held by 688 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in 1973, The Psychology of Conservatism explores attitudes, their measurement, their structure and dynamics, and the personality traits apparently underlying attitude patterns. It examines the link between differing attitudes and discusses characteristic patterns and syndromes. The book focuses on the origins and dynamics of a major factor called "liberalism - conservatism" which is found to account for much of the variance in attitudes amongst different people. Contributors review previous studies relating to personality and attitude before engaging in new studies and proposing their own theories to explain the conservative attitude. The book introduces provocative theoretical ideas and provides a valuable examination of an important psychological and social attitude syndrome. This book will be of interest to researchers in personality and social psychology, sociology and political science and education."--Publisher website

A Textbook of human psychology by H. J Eysenck( Book )

There are so many good textbooks in the field of this sense the book is more comparable to modern human psychology that anyone producing a new one textbooks of 'harder' sciences such as physics and must have a good excuse, ready to explain his physiology. Theories are considered important, but temerity. Our reason for bringing together the various only theories that are scientific in the sense that they authors who have contributed the chapters of this continuously interact with empirically derived facts. book is a very simple one. Most textbooks are written Theories which seldom make contact with facts (e. g. just for future professional psychologists, i. e. for Jung's theory of archetypes) are generally ignored. students who are going to adopt psychology as their There is one other point about which we would like to be explicit. Textbooks often state different theories life's work, and whose main area of concentration is psychology. These students are, of course, a very im­ regarding a particular phenomenon, or set of phenom­ portant group, yet psychology is becoming more and ena, without giving any opinion as to which of these more important to professionals in other fields as well theories might be judged superior to the others

Psychology for performing artists : butterflies and bouquets by Glenn D Wilson( Book )

13 editions published between 1900 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern psychology has much to offer performing artists in terms of understanding themselves and optimizing their art: it can explain the instinctual origins of the impulse to perform, examine the two-way relationship between performer and audience, describe the way in which emotions are transmitted via non-verbal processes, test theories about the nature of music and humour and their influence on our emotions, and offer suggestions as to how the particular stresses that performers are under can be managed. This book provides a unique and up-to-date analysis of what psychology has to contribute for actors, musicians, singers and dancers. Drawing on numerous practical examples from the arts as well as scientific and clinical research, it will be an invaluable resource for student, professional and amateur performer alike
