Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The chapter authors appear to be very knowledgeable about their topics and, in many cases, did a lot of background work to get the details the chapters contain, especially the early chapters on people and places important to the history."
Benjamin Schneider
Senior Research Fellow, Valtera Corporation, University of Maryland (Emeritus)

"I believe all graduate students in IO psychology should have a copy of this book. The book provides a rich basis for an undergraduate or graduate survey course in IO psychology."
Jeanette N. Cleveland
Pennsylvania State University

"This is a unique volume. No other work of which I am aware provides this important background. Laura Koppes and the Associate Editors are uniquely qualified to edit this book, both from background and documented interest."
William Macey
Valtera Corporation

"There is a crying need for this book in the psychology curriculum. There is no survey of IO as comprehensive as this. Given the enormous impact IO has had on modern society, I believe many teachers will assign this volume as required reading."
Richard T. von Mayrhauser
University of California at Berkeley

"This unique collection is the first to contain a comprehensive history of industrial and organizational psychology, covering numerous topics in the discipline. The history presented offers various perspectives including the contribution of individuals, organizations, contextual and situational forces, as well as an international viewpoint." - Abstracts of Public Administration, Development, and Environment
