Summary "Three years ago, when Perspectives in Personality Theory appeared under the editorship of Henry P. David and Helmut von Bracken, with contributions by twenty-two psychologists from nine different countries, I described it as "a real landmark in international cooperation among psychologists." All of us connected with the International Union of Scientific Psychology were delighted with this tangible expression of increased communication among psychologists, who too often remain content to read the writings of their own countrymen in their own language. Our pleasure was increased with the publication of the volume in German as well, thus widening even more the circle of international contact; The favorable reception accorded the first Perspectives was convincing proof that such publications met a real need in the psychological community, and the hope was expressed on many sides that what had succeeded so well would establish a precedent for the future. After all, psychologists are not usually content with just a single case! It is therefore with even greater pleasure and pride that, in the name of the International Union of Scientific Psychology, I write these few words of introduction to the second volume. Perspectives in Personality Research, again edited by Henry P. David, this time in cooperation with J. C. Brengelmann, contains contributions from twenty-seven psychologists from eleven countries, an even wider range than that represented by its predecessor"--Foreword.
