MEDIA REVIEWS
"Ludy Benjamin has organized a superb collection of readings for the history of psychology, blending outstanding and accessible selections from great authors of the past with excellent historical essays by contemporary researchers. This volume will make an excellent book for any history of psychology course." Henry L. Roediger, III, Washington University in St. Louis "By allowing psychology's pioneers to speak in their own voices, supplemented by historical analysis and his own introductions, Ludy Benjamin brings psychology's history alive. By so doing, Benjamin, a great historian of psychology, illuminates yesterday's great ideas and their reach into today's psychological science." David Myers, Hope College "If the history of psychology sounds dry and dull, then you have not yet read the 3rd edition of Ludy Benjamin's edited book. It is a mix of original writing by psychology's greatest thinkers and commentary by contemporary psychologists. History of Psychology: Original Sources and Contemporary Research is fascinating reading for anyone who wants to understand the development of topics as diverse as Freudian notion of repression and application of learning theory to education." Diane F. Halpern, Claremont McKenna College, 2004 President of the American Psychological Association
