Statistics in Psychology: An Historical Perspective
This book presents an historical overview of the field--from its development to the present--at an accessible mathematical level. This edition features two new chapters--one on factor analysis and the other on the rise of ANOVA usage in psychological research.
Written for psychology, as well as other social science students, this book introduces the major personalities and their roles in the development of the field. It provides insight into the disciplines of statistics and experimental design through the examination of the character of its founders and the nature of their views, which were sometimes personal and ideological, rather than objective and scientific. It motivates further study by illustrating the human component of this field, adding dimension to an area that is typically very technical.
Intended for advanced undergraduate and/or graduate students in psychology and other social sciences, this book will also be of interest to instructors and/or researchers interested in the origins of this omnipresent discipline.

Review: Statistics in Psychology: An Historical PerspectiveUser Review - Rebekka Istrail - Goodreads
Really helps to put the importance of different methodological (statistical) developments in psychology in context. Also, the old quotes from psychologists are sometimes quite witty and endearing. Read full review
