It offers the reader a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the principal theories, methods, and findings relating to the area. The primary audience is composed of researchers, instructors, and graduate students—the book successfully integrates theory, scientific research, and practical applications, and is sufficiently informative to earn the respect of specialists.
