Award description

The William James Award is intended to honor and publicize a recent book published within the last 5 years that best serves to further the goals of the society by providing an outstanding example of an effort to bring together diverse subfields of psychology and related disciplines. This work must provide a coherent framework that stands as a creative synthesis of theory and fact from disparate areas and demonstrates an essential underlying set of themes that serve to unify or integrate the field. Recipients of the William James Book Award are expected to deliver a major address for Div. 1 at the annual APA Convention, and also to provide a copy of the award presentation for inclusion in the newsletter of the society (The General Psychologist). The authors will each receive a certificate. A single cash prize of $1,500 will be awarded to help defray travel expenses for that convention.
