Book Reviews

pp. 463—467

This book consists of 42 articles relating to a broad spectrum of roles, job functions and issues that a school psychologist may potentially encounter. AU of the articles, with the exception of one convention presentation by the “author,” are reprints from education and/or psychology journals. The journals from which the articles are taken range in diversity from the School Psychology Digest to the Journal of Health. Three-fourths of the total number of articles are taken from the Journal of School Psychology, the School Psychology Digest, Exceptional Children, and Phi Delta Kappan. The recency of the articles ranges from 1976 to 1980with 80% of the total number of articles taken from journals published in 1978 and 1979. Needless to say, the phrase “Reprinted by Permission” is a familiar sight. What is curious, however, is that the “author”gives no indication in the Preface to the book that he is an editor and only briefly alludes to the fact that this is a book of readings that “focus on current issues.” In reality, the “author” has contributed about 15 pages (out of 480) of introductory and transition comments and two articles.
