"A Brief History of Modern Psychology will itself become part of the history of modern psychology. It is a classic work by one of the most distinguished living historians of psychology. Anyone who wishes to understand how the field of psychology has reached its present state should read this book." Robert J. Sternberg, Tufts University
"This book offers exciting new analyses of such diverse topics as G. Stanley Hall’s genetic psychology, the 19th-century ‘public psychologies’ of phrenology and mesmerism, and the late-20th-century emergence of a psychology of social action. A Brief History of Modern Psychology provides a stimulating new resource that will inspire 21st-century psychology students’ interest in their science’s past. " Michael M. Sokal, Founding Editor, History of Psychology
"The Behaviorism chapter was the best historical introduction that I can remember reading — just what historical writing should be." Wesley G. Morgan, Department of Psychology, University of Tennessee
“The reader is guided through over a century of psychology in less than three hundred pages, yet the experience is never a taxing one. Both the precision and the conciseness of the book will undoubtedly make it appealing for undergraduate course work.” ISIS
“Conversational and…quite readable…easy to study from and deliver[s] plenty of useful information…would also be ideal for the lay reader for a survey of psychology's history.”
