This book presents a series of informal biographies about major figures in the history of psychology. A unique combination of expertise and human appeal, the volume places the contributions of each pioneer in a new and fascinating perspective. For instance, several of the authors use the novel approach of having the pioneers return to the present day to reflect back on their work as it relates to the here and now. Revisions of speeches given in a popular series of invited addresses at psychological conventions, the chapters offer appealing glimpses into the lives of individuals who made a difference in the early years of psychology as a field of study. Each of the five volumes in this series contains different profiles thereby bringing more than 100 of the pioneers in psychology more vividly to life.

Envisaging CENTURIES, Great Philosophers Have Noted That Ry Repeats Itself. Sadly, in Certain Areas of the World, This Can Make a History of Conflict Difficult to Overcome. Many International Educators Today Believe That Encouraging Peace and Cooperation in Areas of Conflict Is a Priority to Create a New History for Our World- the Kind That Should Be Repeated Rather Than the Kind We'd like to Forget. This Issue's Cover Story "Peace Pathways," by Dana Wilkie, Which Is the Fourth in an Occasional Feature Series about Peace and Social Justice Issues in International Education, Focuses on How International Educators Are Taking Students to Areas of Conflict like Northern Ireland, Nepal, Kosovo, and Middle East to Help Create a New Tradition of Peacebuilding.
