APA Style (7th ed.)

To cite and reference the entire book, use the editor(s) names in place of an author at the beginning of the reference, followed by the abbreviation "Ed." or "Eds" in parentheses (American Psychological Association, 2020, p. 287). For example:

McKibben, B. (Ed.). (2011). The global warming reader. Penguin Books.

For similar examples, see: Book/ebook References from the APA Style website or page 322 of the APA Style manual.

If you are citing a specific chapter of an edited book, please create an individual reference entry for that chapter (see: How Do I Reference a Chapter of an Edited Book in APA Style?).
