This book will be of value to psychologists and historians interested in twentieth-century American psychology. It discusses how Edward Tolman drew from European psychology (particularly Gestalt theory) to promote the concept of the cognitive map. His story is an essential contribution to our understanding of America, and American psychology, at mid-century.
