Product Description

Review

"This is an ambitious book that forces the reader to think more deeply about the role of psychology in perpetuating structural forms of societal prejudice, especially racism. Considerable evidence is presented that strongly supports this thesis. It is a book that succeeds in meeting its main objective – provoking further critical thought about the ideology and practice of dominant psychologies." Dr Gerry Finn, Reader in Department of Educational Studies, University of Strathclyde, UK <!––end––> "A well–written and well–researched book that makes a powerful and persuasive plea for psychology to break out of its self–imposed confines and reach beyond Western perspectives so that it may serve the needs of peopple of all cultures equally well." Dev Sharma, Educational Psychology in Practice, Vol 18, 2002 "This book represents an important step forward in the field of (Western) psychology because it is one of the few books that attempts to carve out an archaeology of psychological knowledge that goes beyond Western perspectives... Owusu–Bempah and Howitt must be commended for producing a provocative text that is much needed within the field of psychology. They deserve praise for foregrounding issues of race, ethnicity and gender with a degree of bluntness and forthrightness that is often lacking in much psychological research." Sunil Bhatia, Connecticut College, Theory & Psychology, Vol. 13(2): 285–287

From the Back Cover

Professional psychology has its historical, intellectual, organisational and financial roots in the Western nations. However, much of this ′Western′ psychology neglects the needs of the communities which it now seeks to serve. The book discusses, explains and illustrates some of the potential of psychology beyond the strait–jacket that has been imposed upon it by its intellectual and empirical roots. It provides a positive model for psychological theory, research and practice, and offers a racially and culturally aware perspective.
