From Library Journal
By surveying histories, psychology encyclopedias, introductory textbooks, and the awards lists of psychological associations, the editors?two British professors of psychology and an Irish journalist?have compiled the biographical details of 500 persons who made important contributions to modern psychology from the mid-19th century to the early 1990s. Signed entries, written by an international team of contributors, vary in length from a paragraph to several pages for prominent individuals. Though the editors attempted worldwide representation, the majority of individuals profiled are European or North American. Each entry gives name, date and place of birth and death, nationality, main area of interest in psychology, education, appointments, honors and awards, principal publications, further reading (sources of critical, appreciative, or analytical accounts of the person's main work), intellectual development, and main ideas, including an assessment of influence. The volume concludes with four indexes: by name, interests (using the American Psychological Association categories), institution, and key terms and concepts. Unfortunately, the choice to emphasize academic and professional work excludes individuals who have distinguished themselves in popular and applied psychology. Still, this well-organized work is much more up-to-date than comparable resources, and the entries are well written, hitting all the salient points. Recommended for academic and large public libraries.?Lucille M. Boone, San Jose P.L., Cal.
