Contents

This month we return to the issue of 'austerity', following last September's 'opinion special'. It remains one of the main political, social and psychological topics of our time, and we have five contributions covering the conditions in which people are learning, living and working. So far, argue the Midlands Psychology Group, psychologists have done little to challenge the dubious scientific assumptions upon which 'austerity programmes' rest. In fact, have they sought to profit from them, 'through the mass promotion of therapies and techniques claimed to counteract the mental and emotional damage wrought by an ever more corrosive world'?

Also in this issue (p.229), we bid a fond farewell to Dr Christian Jarrett, our journalist and Editor of the Society's Research Digest. For more than a decade, Christian has delivered quality to huge audiences, and the Digest is regularly described as a 'genuine game changer' in how psychology is reported, taught and perceived. Quite some legacy: I'm sure we'll be hearing more from him.
