Research into abilities is one of the great success stories of psychology. Ability tests are widely used and there is continued interest in the origins of abilities - genes or environment? - and their links to social phenomena such as crime and welfare dependency. "Intelligence and Abilities" offers an introduction to these issues and explains what is known about the processes associated with mental abilities and the relationship of abilities to behavior. It also provides a clear and up-to-date guide to the main areas of research.
