List Price: $39.95
A collection of some of the historical scholarship that has appeared in the journals of the American Psychological Association during the last three decades of the 20th century. In articles that explore important milestones, controversies and transitions in the history of psychology, contributors discuss a wide range of psychological developments from Yerke's experiments to feminist methodology. This reader effectively places a wide variety of ideologies, prominent figures and psychological concepts in a larger historical context, seeking to make complex historical and social perspectives accessible and challenging. Rather than merely celebrating great men and historical events, as many histories of psychology have done, this volume places people and events in social and temporal perspective. What emerges is the humanness of psychology, its human successes, failings and compromises.
