    Reviews & endorsements

    "This volume...captures the spirit of the changing 1990s and comes at just the right time...offers many riches that cannot be found together in any other source. It should be of great interest not only to those concerned with self-efficacy theory and related models but to anyone concerned with how we adapt to social change." Contemporary Psychology

    "Albert Bandura is justifiably viewed as the originator of self-efficacy--a construct that now rightfully involves numerous investigators who operate in different areas...Self-Efficacy in Changing Societies is a winner." Norman Garmezy, Professor of Psychology Emeritus, University of Minnesota

    "...a valuable resource for researchers and practitioners alike....stands out as a remarkably successful effort at bridging the worlds of theory, research, and applied concerns, and forecasting important directions for future investigations and practice." David L. DuBois, Journal of Adolescence

    "...anyone intersted in contemporary applications of self-efficacy theory will find this to be an enormously useful resource." Richard E. Watts, Journal of Cognitive Psycho-theory
