This extraordinarily well-written book gives a thorough account of the findings in the field of personality. Needless to say, an attempt to explain how personality develops is a very complicated task. Admittedly, there is no one theory that manages to provide an adequate and flawless explanation as to why we behave the way we do. On the contrary, there are so many different theories which have to be taken into consideration if we are to gain a richer understanding of personality. This is exactly what Mr. Pervin has achieved. A great number of theories are presented in a comprehensive but lucid way. In addition, each theory is followed by constructive criticism which allows the reader to further analyse the material in a critical fashion. What I like about this book in particular is the fact that the author employs simple terminology that is easily accessible to most readers. Highly recommended!
Propaganda and Sheer Lies!
Let us begin by analyzing the focal poits made by Johnstone. Her principal postulation is that Bosnian Serbs were not the aggressor in the Bosnian war but the victims. This is an extremely preposterous assertion and it contradicts the unequivocal evidence gathered by the leading experts in the field. Supported by Serbia, Bosnian Serbs were military superior to both Bosnian Muslims and Croats. This is irrefutable! Also, Johnstone makes aberrant accusations by claiming that perhaps Muslims were targeting Sarajevo during the Bosnian war in an attemp to exterminate their own people. This accusation is so absurd and contradictory that it makes me sick! Is she not aware of the fact that Bosnian Serbs held Pale during the entire course of the war and they still do? It was from Pale that they shelled Sarajevo. This is the worst propaganda I have ever read. Preposterous and worthless!
This book is full of lies, distortions and numerous factual errors. Johnstone denies that genocide occurred in Bosnia. Furthermore, she asserts that there is no compelling evidence that the Serbs committed atrocities in Bosnia.
