Not since the landmark publication of Handbook of Human Intelligence in 1982 has the field of intelligence been more alive than it is today. Spurred by the new developments in a rapidly expanding field, Robert Sternberg has brought together a stellar list of contributors to provide a comprehensive, broad and deeply thematic review of intelligence that will be accessible to both scholar and student. Handbook of Intelligence is greatly expanded to cover areas such as animal and artificial intelligence, as well as human intelligence, fully reflecting important theoretical progress made since the early 1980s.
