Aspects of the History of Psychology in America: 1892–1992 chronicles the growth and struggle that have characterized the development of psychology as a science in the last century. With a keen focus on the social polices and institutions that have directed the course of intellectual work, leading historical scholars explore how such forces as sexism, politics, and ideological rivalry have shaped the field of psychology.

This volume is the result of a workshop held by the Psychology Section of the New York Academy of Sciences on February 15, 1992 in New York, New York to celebrate the 175th anniversary of the New York Academy of Sciences and the 100th anniversary of the American Psychological Association.
