Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(1), 92–93. Reviews the book, International Psychology: Views from Around the World edited by Virginia Staudt Sexton and John D. Hogan (1992). This important volume on international psychology now edited by two historians of the discipline of psychology, Sexton and Hogan, is an expanded, follow-up to an earlier version (Sexton & Misiak, 1976). The current book covers 45 countries, the earlier one covered only 28 countries plus three geographical regions. The 45 countries are examined in terms of the state of the discipline of psychology within their respective borders, essentially as of 1987. In the editors' own words, as stated in the Preface, “we chose those countries that were member nations of the International Union of Psychological Science”. Hence, this volume is basically and primarily a treatise on the state of psychology as reflected within the Union. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
