Summary This volume, published as part of the APA [American Psychological Association] centennial celebration, demonstrates how the association evolved in response to intellectual, cultural, political, and economic historical developments. Nine chronological chapters discuss the personalities and events, the successes and failures, that molded the APA and transformed it from a small organization of 26 academician-researcher members to one of the largest professional associations in the United States and in the world, with a membership of over 100,000 academicians, scientists, and practitioners. Three other chapters offer a look at the association in terms of the role of women, of its conception of social responsibility, and of its mandate to disseminate knowledge to its own members and beyond. . . . This volume clearly demonstrates that, because the American Psychological Association began so early in the development of modern psychological thought, its history and development have been intimately bound up with the development of the field as a whole.
