Quotes and reviews

"In this collection of literature reviews and summarized research reports, there are admirably detailed and authoritative discussions of a wide range of constructs and theories related to achievement motivation and its development. They will provide valuable introductions for graduate students and other researchers in developmental and educational psychology, and should serve the important purpose of bringing the two fields closer together."
-CONTEMPORARY PSYCHOLOGY

"This book is ideal for readers looking for a single-volume work detailing various theoretical models that explain children's achievement motivation. The editors have brought together many of the major writers in achievement motivation... A single-volume collection of this scope is probably unique. It will be enormously helpful to graduate students and faculty."
--CHOICE

"Prominent scholars in the fields of education, psychology, and human development provide an overview of current theoretical models of children's achievement motivation, with an ephasis on gender and ethnic differences in motivation, and attempt to provide some definitional clarity to a somewhat fragmentary field."
