The Making of Psychohistory is the first volume dedicated to the history of psychohistory, an amalgam of psychology, history, and related social sciences. Dr. Paul Elovitz, a participant since the early days of the organized field, recounts the origins and development of this interdisciplinary area of study, as well as the contributions of influential individuals working within the intersection of historical and psychological thinking and methodologies. This is an essential, thorough reflection on the rich and varied scholarship within psychohistory's subfields of applied psychoanalysis, political psychology, and psychobiography.

Paul H. Elovitz, PhD is a founding member and past president of the International Psychohistorical Association, founder of the Psychohistory Forum, founder and editor-in-chief of the journal Clio's Psyche, and a founding member of Ramapo College of New Jersey where he teaches history, interdisciplinary studies, and psychohistory. He practiced psychotherapy for a quarter century after extensive training in psychoanalysis, and is the author of over 340 publications.
