Continuing the series′ tradition of providing scholarly, up to the minute reviews and updates of theory and research this twenty–sixth volume surveys developments in such areas as stress and well–being, consumer behavior, employee trust, candidate faking in the selection process, the assessment of job performance and work attitudes, and the employment interview. Newer topics to the series surveyed in the present volume include methodological issues in the development and evaluation of multiple regression models and an examination of the psychological impact of the physical office environment. Each chapter offers a comprehensive and critical survey of the chosen topic, and each is supported by a valuable bibliography. For advanced students, academics and researchers, as well as professional psychologists and managers, this series remains the most authoritative and current guide to new developments and established knowledge in the fields of industrial and organizational psychology and organizational behavior.
