This book is a compilation of previously published articles written by German-American psychologist Hugo Münsterberg, many of which attempt to bridge cultural gaps and rectify stereotypes between Germans and Americans. The articles within cover a range of topics, from anxiety to temperance, from women to spiritualism. Münsterberg's pro-German sentiment proved problematic in times of war; he died suddenly in 1916 after enduring rejection from his colleagues and community, but nowadays he is recognized as a highly influential figure in the field of applied psychology.
