It would depend upon whether you are citing the whole book or a chapter in the book. If you citing the entire book, then the authors of the individual chapters are not included. Here is an example from the Purdue OWL web site:
Edited Book, No Author
Duncan, G. J., & Brooks-Gunn, J. (Eds.). (1997). Consequences of growing up poor. New York, NY: Russell Sage Foundation.
If you cite a chapter within the book, you would include both the author(s) of the chapter and the editor of the entire book:
Article or Chapter in an Edited Book
Author, A. A., & Author, B. B. (Year of publication). Title of chapter. In A. Editor & B. Editor (Eds.), Title of book (pages of chapter). Location: Publisher.
O'Neil, J. M., & Egan, J. (1992). Men's and women's gender role journeys: A metaphor for healing, transition,
and transformation. In B. R. Wainrib (Ed.), Gender issues across the life cycle (pp. 107-123). New York: Springer.
Remember to indent the second and all subsequent lines of APA citations, but not the first.
