Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1994, Vol 39(1), 100. David E. Leary comments on Ernest Hilgard's review (see record 2006-06472-007) of Sigmund Koch and Leary's book, A Century of Psychology as Science (see record 1992-98279-000). Leary is pleased to have the volume reviewed, especially since the original edition of A Century of Psychology as Science was not reviewed in Contemporary Psychology, despite the reputation and importance of its many contributors and despite the major award that the volume earned from the Association of American Publishers. However, the reference information at the top of the review gives only the original publication information without citing any information on the recent reissue. This may have confused and misled more than a few readers, who may have assumed that this is a very late review of an old book. The book was first published by McGraw-Hill in 1985, and the recent reissue includes a substantive new postscript by Sigmund Koch. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
