For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
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.
