Women in Psychology is unique in that it is the first bio-bibliographic sourcebook on historical and contemporary women in psychology. It documents, preserves, and makes visible the diversity and excellence of women's contributions to the discipline. Separate chapters evaluate and provide a critical lens through which to view the contributions of 36 women, to the evolution of psychology. Women in Psychology is an especially rich bibliographic resource not only through references at the end of each chapter but through a separate five-part bibliographic chapter that identifies the most important books and other sources of information on women in psychology and references to autobiographical and biographic information on 185 women contributors. The book contains an overview chapter describing the rigorous selection process employed, a chapter on award-winning contributions of women as recognized by the American Psychological Association and the American Psychological Foundation, and appendicies on birth years, place of birth, and major fields. This volume will be useful to historians of psychology, to scholars of women's history and the psychology of women, and to all psychologists and students of psychology. It will also be well received by public and private libraries.

Editorial Reviews

?Extends the editors' earlier examinations of the lives and work of psychology's frequently ignored foremothers. After a comprehensive selection process, 36 women whose scholarship has had a significant impact on psychology and epistemology were selected for inclusion: 14 born between 1847 and 1900; 8 born between 1901 and 1915; and 14 born between 1916 and 1945. In addition to the chapters detailing the personal and professional careers of each of these psychologists, O'Connell and Russo provide separate sections: general bibliographic resources relevant to all women contributors to psychology, including specific references for 185 individual women; a summary of American Psychological Association and American Psychological Foundation awards honoring the contributions of individual women through 1988; and a chronology of birth years and places for the 36 primary subjects of the book, with a listing of the major areas within psychology most significantly influenced by each of their contributions. The biographies, each written by different psychologists, are somewhat diverse in style and content, but all make for interesting reading. More importantly, this book will serve as a valuable resource for teachers and scholars alike. All levels of readers.?-Choice
