Elements of Episodic Memory was a seminal text in the memory literature, highly cited and influential. It has been unavailable for some years, but is now back in print as in its original form, with this reissue.
The book examins the critical role that retrieval processes play in remembering. It proposes that the nature of recollective experience is determiend by the interaction between the 'episodic' trace information and the 'sematic' retrieval information. This basic theme is elaborated by tracing the development of the ideas considering relevant empirical evidence, relating a proposed theoretical framework to the ideas held by other theorists, and dealing with criticisms advanced by others.
These issues are discussed from two perspectives. Firstly, from the point of view of 'detached science': the emphasis here is on ideas, hypotheses, evidence, logic and theory. The second is a personal commentary on the development of ideas at the first viewpoint, and provides observations about the psychology and sociology of a developing science.

`Review from previous edition Tulving's book is sure to have a major influence on investigations of memory. But it will be unfortunate if its readership is restricted to memory researchers. The nature of the book is such that it can serve as a basis for a useful dialogue among those working in a variety of areas.' Contemporary Psychology `In sum, 'Elements' deserves to be read by all students of memory ... We can all benefit from the thoughtful analysis and sensible framing of questions Tulving offers.' Canadian Journal of Psychology `... essential reading for all workers in the area...' Psychological Medicine
