OVERVIEW
A fascinating analysis of the psychology behind Wonder Woman
For 75 years, Wonder Woman has served as an inspiration to people everywhere. Wonder Woman Psychology examines this powerful superhero—who was created by famous psychologist William Moulton Marston—through 20 essays. This collection will analyze:
  • Marston’s important role in the history of forensic psychology
  • How Diana’s relationship with her mother and Amazonian sisters shapes her to become a leader and the heroine called Wonder Woman
  • The ways differences in culture and gender can contribute to alienation but also to personal empowerment 
  • What roles emotion, strengths, virtues, and culture shock play in heroic behavior
