The complete social scientist : a Kurt Lewin reader by Kurt Lewin( Book )
19 editions published between 1999 and 2009 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This anthology continues the effort to make Kurt Lewin's work easily accessible again by bringing together 15 significant articles that were written over a span of 30 yrs. These articles were selected because they still stand as relevant contributions to the world's culture and they reflect the extraordinary range over which Lewin's intellectual activity remains relevant. The first several selections present Lewin as a philosopher of science. The next section includes original reports by Lewin of programs of research that he and his students, or colleagues, carried out on key theoretical problems in motivational, developmental, and social psychology. Following is a selection of articles that Lewin wrote as an applied psychologist. Last are sections in which Lewin responded to requests for advice from policymakers and community leaders.

"We have attempted to describe the position of the concept force in psychology and to discuss major methods of measuring psychological forces. One of our objectives is to bring into the open and to apply scientific standards to those concepts which actually underlie certain recognized research methods and to eliminate those unnecessary accessories which create ranch discussion but little progress"--Book.

Frustration and regression : an experiment with young children by Roger G Barker( Book )
17 editions published between 1941 and 1977 in English and held by 270 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Scientific readers unfamiliar with Lewinian concepts might do well to preface their approach to these experimental studies with the reading of Part I, "Formalization and Progress in Psychology" of Studies in Topological and Vector Psychology I (University of Iowa Studies in Child Welfare, 1940, Vol. 16, No. 3). Another approach would be to begin directly with Chapter II of this study, "Experimental Regression Through Frustration," reserving for later reading the theoretical sections of Studies I and II. The present researches are important in demonstrating the generalized character of the phenomenon of regression: frustration leads to primitive behavior even in areas not connected to inaccessible goals. Behavior is modified in a central fashion. This book experiments with children and their frustration and regression." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2007 APA, all rights reserved)
Studies in topological and vector psychology by Kurt Lewin( Book )
14 editions published between 1940 and 1977 in English and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is a beginning study in topological psychology, enabling the student of psychology to make a fresh start in the understanding and utlization of Dr. Kurt Lewin's methods. Certain it is that all psychologists are interested in Dr. Lewin's major attempt to employ new methods of formulating and mathematizing in psychology in such a way as to retain the basic and primary demands of psychology itself. His dynamic theories lead to certain derivatives whose experimental confirmation rightly is held to be of special significance. In these earlier studies the constructs have been kept semimathematical, as against nonmathematical (which would be confusing) or a display of mathematical technicalities that become devoid of psychological meaning. The work moves forward with two feet upon the ground: one theoretical or conceptual, the other experimental. The why and the what are brought into mutual relationship; they are made to serve each other. The validity of this process rests upon its demonstrated fruitfulness. That Lewin and his colleagues are willing to attack the hard problems that lie at the heart of social psychology (although out on the periphery of psychology as revealed to most pre-Gestalt workers), is in itself encouraging"--Preface.
