However, in terms of the description of Behavior Analysis, yes that is correct in that Behavior Analysis can involve an analysis of operant contingencies but it can also involve an analysis of stimulus-response (S-R) procedures, the overall philosophy behind Respondent Conditioning. Being the science of behavior, Behavior Analysis is based on Radical Behaviorism (aka the Conceptual Analysis of Behavior). Further, the Experimental Analysis of Behavior is not the old term for Behavior Analysis. It is a form of Behavior Analysis that refers to the Laws (or Principles) of Behavior, which includes Functional Analysis, Operant and Respondent Conditioning, Stimulus Generalization, and Habituation (the latter forms the core philosophy behind Desensitization/Exposure Therapy), just to name a few of the many principles.
Another critique I have is that it is easy to assume that Respondent Conditioning uses Stimulus Control, but it technically doesn't because the term didn't exist at the time it was first developed. Stimulus Control has only been defined throughout the research literature as behavior being brought under control by the antecedent discriminative stimulus (Sd), which, as perfectly described in the book, refers to the first two parts of the Three-Term Operant Contingency.
I hope these two points get addressed in the third edition of this book.
