The 28 chapters in the handbook are divided into 9 parts: I. the nature of intelligence and its measurement; II. Development of intelligence; III. Group analyses of intelligence; IV. Biology of intelligence; V. Intelligence and information processing; VI. Kinds of Intelligence; VII. Testing and teaching intelligence; VIII. Intelligence, society, and culture; and IX. Intelligence in relation to allied constructs. The Handbook will serve as an authoritative resource on all aspects of theory, research, and measurement in the field of intelligence. Robert J.
