The Cambridge Handbook of Intelligence provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date compendium of theory and research in the field of human intelligence. Each of the 42 chapters is written by world-renowned experts in their respective fields, and, collectively, they cover the full range of topics of contemporary interest in the study of intelligence. The handbook is divided into nine parts: Part I covers intelligence and its measurement; Part II deals with the development of intelligence; Part III discusses intelligence and group differences; Part IV concerns the biology of intelligence; Part V is about intelligence and information processing; Part VI discusses different kinds of intelligence; Part VII covers intelligence and society; Part VIII concerns intelligence in relation to allied constructs; and Part IX is the concluding chapter, which reflects on where the field is currently and where it still needs to go.

“Sternberg and Kaufman have assembled nearly all of the foremost intelligence researchers and theorists to produce an absolutely essential volume for anyone who wants to understand the nature – and nurture – of intelligence in its many forms. It is the most thorough, authoritative, and readable sourcebook on the science of intelligence that I have ever seen.”
– Joshua Aronson, New York University, editor of Improving Academic Achievement

“The Cambridge Handbook of Intelligence is an extraordinary achievement. Comprehensive, engaging, inspiring, and at times provocative, it leaves no stone unturned – no aspects of intelligence and its consequences unexplored. What is intelligence? Where does it come from? Can it be developed, and if so, how? If you are looking for answers to questions like these, there is no better place to find them than from the world-renowned experts in this remarkable volume.”
