    Abstract

    The putting together of this book coincided with my moving to a Chair in
    Psychology at The University of Liverpool from Surrey University where I had
    been for 23 years. This return to my alma mater after 30 years provides both an
    opportunity for new developments as well as a curious feeling of completion and
    consolidation. Reading through and editing the material for this book, all originally
    written while I was at Surrey, I can see that a particular style of research and of
    psychological thinking did evolve through these many studies (and of course the
    many others not covered here). There is still the need to give as full and coherent
    an account of that approach as is possible rather than the demonstration by example
    which is currently the main way the approach has been explored. Of course, it is
    not a fixed framework. In particular it is now evolving rapidly through use with
    many colleagues in application to the emerging area of Investigative Psychology
    which I identified and named shortly before I left Surrey. This book thus can be
    taken both as a review of the past and a sketch plan for a future more elaborate
    examination of a particular approach to psychological research.
