Psychology Press, 2002 - Psychology - 368 pages
Psychology is a relatively recent and rapidly developing discipline. Perhaps the most significant changes have taken place over the last decade. Graham Richards gives historical perspective to key issues in contemporary psychology such as Psychology and Women and Psychology and Race as well as more traditional topics like behaviourism and Gestalt psychology.Putting Psychology in its Place is aimed specially at undergraduate students but will also appeal to postgraduates and academics interested in gaining a broad based, issue led historical perspective to their discipline.
