Editorial

Antarctica: as Ron Roberts writes in this issue, a place where 'the transcendent coexists with the tragic, a juxtaposition of beauty and threatening natural power'. The transcendent and tragic, beauty and peril, are all themes that pervade this first issue of 2011.

First off, let me introduce you to a new feature of The Psychologist. You may have noticed that I am a fan of words, but we do throw an awful lot of them at you and I felt it was time to show how psychology, psychologists and The Psychologist itself can be visually striking. I hope that 'Big picture' (centre spread) becomes an eagerly anticipated part of The Psychologist. The 'history of experimental psychology' poster we gave away with the last issue was well received, and it would be great if this new series of pull-outs built on that success and adorned walls across the land. As always, we need the support of our community - if your own work lends itself to an interesting image, do get in touch.

Secondly, if you had any doubts as to the importance of psychology, several contributions to this issue show how it can literally be a matter of life and death.

Dr Jon Sutton
Managing Editor
