An attempt to determine whether psychology as a scientific discipline can contribute anything toward solving problems in international relations. The credentials of American academic psychology are checked and the performance of the members in this area of the profession is evaluated. The paper concludes that the present image projected by a small group of psychologists is due to default and to the silence of the overwhelming majority of other psychologists. The time has come for these others to make themselves heard and to make the contributions that American society has a right to expect.

This report is part of the RAND Corporation Paper series. The paper was a product of the RAND Corporation from 1948 to 2003 that captured speeches, memorials, and derivative research, usually prepared on authors' own time and meant to be the scholarly or scientific contribution of individual authors to their professional fields. Papers were less formal than reports and did not require rigorous peer review.
