The first edition of this book broke new ground. This new edition continues to address the question of racial and other biases in psychology. This controversial book brings to light some of the more bizarre turns the study of human differences has taken. Studies which supported Black inferiority were immediately accepted while studies which questioned white superiority were pushed aside. Youill find: how the Europeans and Africans viewed each other and how these attitudes influenced European and American ideas for centuries; why the concerns of psychologists who questioned biased research were ignored; how racist psychological arguments were used to show why desegregation wouldnit work; the often-overlooked contributions of minority psychologists to the field, and much more.
