Riassunto: This volume is the second in the series presenting the histories of the divisions of the American Psychological Association in celebration of the 50th Anniversary of the founding of the division structure. The division structure of APA has been a critical element in its, and psychology's, success - and this series is devoted to exploring the unique contributions and history of each. Each chapter in this second volume describes the events behind the foundation of a division and its subsequent history. The histories of Divisions 9, 12, 13, 14, 26, 28, 29, 35, 38 and 43 are presented. These histories go beyond mere chronological presentations of fact to give a behind-the-scenes look into defining events of a division's history and the dedicated individuals who shaped them. Chapters cover such areas as the overall philosophy and approach of the division, membership parameters over time, programme presentations at annual conventions, and controversies. From these engaging accounts emerge a picture of how the divisions have shaped, and have been shaped by, the larger events and controversies within psychology. This book should be of interest to division and APA members and students.
Sinossi: This edited volume is the second in a series about the histories of the divisions of the American Psychological Association. Each chapter focuses on the foundation and significant events of a division, and reviews such areas as membership, finances, controversies, and administration. Each chapter is written by a different author--usually someone who is a loyal division member or a founding member. There is a variety of historical styles used by the authors--some present simple chronologies and others provide more critical histories, analyzing how larger trends within psychology shaped, and were shaped by, division events.
