Editorial Reviews

`This book's strengths are its focus on the organizational structures and their interplay in the history of American clinical psychology....This is a text that should be read by beginning clinical psychologists....It is also a useful resource of the key people in clinical psychology's history, and will serve as a benchmark volume for this value alone.'
