"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
