Goodwin presents psychologists with an innovative new book that offers a set of important readings along with a running annotation that addresses the meaning of the reading s content. This includes a look at how the content relates to the contemporary historical context and the significance of the material for psychology s history. Each chapter begins with basic biographical information about the writer and concludes with narrative that places the writings in their historical context and explains their significance. Brief explanations, elaborations, or narrative that aims to connect the different segments are integrated throughout the excerpts from that person s writing. Psychologists will gain an even stronger understanding of and appreciation for the subject.
