Review Quotes
"A work that provides information about psychological eponyms--terms or phrases in fairly common use among psychologists that incorporate the name of an individual, place, or institution. There are also selected eponyms from fields related to psychology (e.g., education, psychiatry, psychoanalysis). . . . Zusne notes that about 60% of these terms are not found in dictionaries of psychology. More than 850 eponyms are defined; the origins of the term is duscussed; and short biographies of eponymous persons are furnished. Biographies include lists of other biographical sources, and the full titles of abbreviated journal and book titles that contain additional biographical information is available in many sources. Zusne's Biographical Dictionary of Psychology is among the most helpful. This seems to be the only English-language dictionary of psychological eponyms."-Choice
'œThe first edition of this reference work entitled Names in the History of Psychology, was arranged chronologically by date of birth and its index was barely adequate. This revision is rearranged alphabetically. Each of 600 eminent deceased biographees has an entry stressing contributions and listing place and date of birth and death, highest degree, and major positions held, followed by a selective list of accessible sources for further biographical data, and a concise but carefully crafted narrative section averaging 23 lines. Sources and death dates extend up to 1982. Indexing has been substantially improved, and sexist language has been eliminated. Essential only for libraries supporting programs in the history or systems of psychology; recommended for collections strong in the area of biographical reference.'' Library Journal
