New York:: New York University Press, 1985., 1985. 8vo. xii, 299,  pp. 1 table, index. Brown gilt-stamped cloth, dust-jacket; jacket with tiny tear lower front edge, spine faded. AUTHOR'S INKED INSCRIPTION: "For Russ Maulitz, with admiration, John O'Donnell August 88". Very good. ISBN: 0814761623 First edition. "This is a tightened version of a doctoral dissertation already well known among historians of psychology. Like good dissertations. John O'Donnell's is based upon a mastery of primary sources, both archival and published. The author has, moreover, integrated secondary sources into the primary source findings in an exemplary way. The narrative reads well and makes strong and understandable arguments. Finally, not only is the topic significant, as the title suggests, but the approach is so broad that the work is virtually an imaginative rewrite of the general history of American psychology for a crucial half-century period." - John C. Burnham, Isis 77, no. 3 (Sep., 1986): p. 532.
