In A History of Modern Psychology in Context , the authors resist the traditional storylines of great achievements by eminent people, or schools of thought that rise and fall in the wake of scientific progress. Instead, psychology is portrayed as a network of scientific and professional practices embedded in specific contexts. The narrative is informed by three key concepts--indigenization, reflexivity, and social constructionism--and by the fascinating interplay between disciplinary Psychology and everyday psychology.

"Pickren and Rutherford want to provide a history of psychology that describes how culture, race, ethnicity, and gender have influenced psychology's development within social, political, and economic contexts. They intend to provide a postmodern, social constructionist treatment of psychology's history that is accessible to undergraduate students. In a number of other ways Pickren and Rutherford do a good job of providing an original description of the field's social and historical contexts. They do a credible job of providing an alternative version of our discipline's history that students and professors ready for a postmodern textbook will find novel and instructive." ( PsycCRITIQUES , September 15, 2010)
