Publisher Synopsis

"This fine collection of papers is a fitting tribute to Michael Browne, one of the giants of contemporary psychometrics. Readers interested in latent variable models are sure to enjoy this valuable edited volume." - Kenneth A. Bollen, University of North Carolina- Chapel Hill, USA "This exciting volume adds impressively to the structural equation modeling literature by giving top contributors in our field a new forum for presenting their current thinking about pressing issues." - John R. Nesselroade, University of Virginia, USA "An inspiring book on latent variable modeling in honor of a great man and scientist. It offers an excellent sample of new applications and methodologies, an enjoyable snapshot of an important and expanding field." - Paul de Boeck, University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands "This book will be a significant contribution to the field and I am enthusiastic about its publication. ... The editors ... recruited a strong list of contributors. ...This book would be appropriate for advanced graduate students, [and] applied researchers ... and ... statisticians. It could be used in conjunction with a more general text for a ... course on structural equation modeling." - Jason T. Newsom, Portland State University, USA "The range of topics ... [will] be of interest to researchers and graduate students. ... [It] represents a considerable contribution to the literature on latent variable modeling. .... It draws on the expertise of a number of well-known researchers in the field."- Ronald H. Heck, University of Hawaii at Manoa, USA"A significant contribution to the field." - Melanie M. Wall, Columbia University, USA Read more...
