Fundamentals of Learning and Memory, Second Edition provides information pertinent to the basic conditioning processes. This book presents an integration of the fields of animal and human learning. Organized into six parts encompassing 17 chapters, this edition begins with an overview of the definition of learning that encompasses many of the elements of alternative definitions. This text then considers the processes of acquisition, including a detailed discussion of contiguity, practice, and reinforcement. Other chapters include an extensive discussion of issues, problems, and alternative theories within the field of retention. This book discusses as well the problem of transfer, with emphasis on stimulus generation and transfer of training. The final chapter deals with behavior modification as a general method for understanding, altering, and controlling behavior, which differs dramatically from more traditional clinical or therapeutic approaches. This book is a valuable resource for psychologists, behavior therapists, behavior modification theorists, and psychology students.

People who knew Cleveland Amory say it would be impossible to forget him and his compassion for animals. He is the loveable old curmudgeon, the author of The Cat Who Came for Christmas, a man who evolved from writer to animal crusader. Amory also created the Fund for Animals, an aggressive animal rights organization. This book chronicles Amory's amazing Army of the Kind--airlifting 500 burros set to be slaughtered from the depths of the Grand Canyon, saving pigeons and rabbits, stalking hunters, shooing buffalo. Along the way, he created sanctuaries for animals to save them from abuse and neglect, establishing a network of foot soldiers for his Army. The Fund never grew to the size of an organization like PETA, but it was an irritating presence to anybody who tried to hurt animals. The story of the Fund relates how far we've come, explores how far we need to go, and shows the type of personality needed to head the next generation of animal rights activists.
