"The five years since the publication of the first edition of Industrial Psychology have been eventful ones for the world and for psychology in industry. A decade ago, only a dozen or fifteen persons were usually in attendance at sessions on industrial psychology at professional meetings. Hundreds now attend the sessions on this subject. A decade ago, only a scattered few psychologists were employed by industry. Scores of psychologists are now well established in industrial jobs. Before World War II, only a few courses in industrial psychology were given by a limited number of colleges and universities. Now, almost every department of psychology gives one or more courses in this subject, to say nothing of the many extension, evening, and correspondence courses devoted to psychology in industry. This growth of interest in the field of industrial psychology has also resulted in a marked increase in publications in this field during the past few years. The major purpose of the present revision of Industrial Psychology has been to include a coverage of this extensive new material. Every chapter has been thoroughly revised and much new material has been included. In addition, two entirely new chapters have been added, one of which deals with the interview and related employment procedures, the other with wages and job evaluation. The recent recognition of the contribution that can be made by psychology to the subject of job evaluation would seem to justify a coverage of at least the basic principles of job evaluation techniques in a textbook on industrial psychology. The chapter on visual skills has been revised in collaboration with Dr. S. E. Wirt"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved).
