Overview:

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 the major events in the theorists' lives affected their ideas, approaches, and methods.

Substantial updates in the eleventh edition include discussions of the latest developments in positive psychology; the increasing role of brain science in psychology; the return of Freud's anal personality; Ada Lovelace, the virgin «Bride of Science»; the interpretation of dreams by computers; the use of Coca Cola as a «nerve tonic» and many other topics. The result is a text that is as timely and relevant today as it was when it was first introduced.
