I am looking for a psychology book that presents classic developments in psychology without distortion. For example, most recent textbooks I've looked at give a very brief discusion of the stages in Erikson's Identity Theory without any of his ideas about Identity formation.
I had to buy his original books to better understand the issue of Identity. Another example is Maslow's Hierarchy of Human Needs. One textbook had 5 levels, another had 7, and a third had 31! I belive 7 is the correct number, but I'm not sure of the content that was presented.
It seems in the last 30 years editors have pretty much rewritten a lot of the original thinking of the founders of psychological thought.
Can anyone help me?
