These insightful essays, remarkably free of the jargon endemic to the social sciences, will enrich academic libraries' psychology reference collections. Wilson Library Bulletin 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.
