Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Peter B. Zeldow, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book consists of 107 brief chapters, written by authors from 15 different countries, on the history of psychology. The chapters are organized into seven sections covering Beginnings; From Psychophysics to Behaviorism; Gestalt Psychology; Human Development and Personality; Psychiatry, Psychoanalysis, and Abnormal Psychology; Growth of Branches; International Developments.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a "supplement to the more mainstream histories of psychology" as well as a solid introduction to the field in its own right. Through the liberal use of pictures, many of which are rare, the authors aspire to make the history of the discipline more visible and "to make the past come alive."
Audience: The book is written for all psychologists with an interest in the history of the discipline. It will also be of interest to students of history and to scholars in related social sciences.
Features: The book is copiously illustrated with more than 650 illustrations and tables. Each chapter has a bibliography, and there are both a subject index and a thorough name index. The book is very attractively produced.
Assessment: This book is clearly a labor of love on the part of its editors. The chapters are of the highest quality, and the photographs and illustrations truly bring the subject matter to life. The selection of topics and historical figures is wide-ranging and pleasantly unconventional as compared to traditional history of psychology texts. The book is both a scholarly success and a work of beauty.

Josef Brozek
Impressive [in] the number of topics that are covered, the diversity and number of illustrations.... the serious reader will find... information on topics not covered in any other reference book.
Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences
Werner Deutsche
The book is a historical kaleidoscope in which we discover ever new details.... a documentation that has no equal [and] deserves a firm place in libraries... [it] can be approached without previous experience in psychology.
Fprache Und Cognition
Mark Galliker
The book can be recommended to scientists who have devoted their life's work to a specialized field but nevertheless consider it important to see their work in new perspective.... One finds astonishing connections.
