A History of Modern Psychology
A market leader for over 30 years, A HISTORY OF MODERN PSYCHOLOGY has been praised for its comprehensive coverage and biographical approach. Focusing on modern psychology, the text's coverage begins with the late 19th century. The authors personalize the history of psychology not only by using biographical information on influential theorists, but also by showing how major events in those theorists' lives have affected the authors' own ideas, approaches, and methods. Substantial updates in this edition include discussions of evolutionary psychology, cognitive neuroscience, and positive psychology. The result is a text that is as timely and relevant today as it was when it was first introduced.

Review: A History of Modern PsychologyUser Review - Charles - Goodreads
This is a good introductory text for any History course in Psychology. Has good coverage, though not exhaustive, but is fairly easy and interseting to read. I've taught with it before. Read full review
