The Biographical Dictionary of Psychology provides biographical information and critical analysis of the influences, interest and reception of over 500 people who have made a significant contribution to the field of psychology. The entries are alphabetically organized and identically structured. Introductory biographical details cover main fields of interest, nationality, places and dates of birth and death, appointments and honors. This section is followed by full bibliographic details of principal publications, as well as secondary and critical literature. The main body of the entry gives a critical appraisal of the life, work and major achievements of each figure. --From publisher's description.

Biographical dictionary of psychologyUser Review - Book Verdict
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.
