‘Race’, Racism and Psychology
This first comprehensive history of Psychology’s handling of the issues surrounding ‘race’shows how the discipline is embedded within the concerns of the particular society andparticular time under scrutiny. There is thorough examination of the period from themid-19th century to 1970, with necessarily selective coverage of more recent issues.Topics discussed range from Scientific Racism late in the last century, support for andcritique of the ‘Race Psychology’ school in the first half of the present century, theEuropean concept of ‘primitive mind’, prejudice and ‘Negro’ personality studies and Naziracist Psychology, to the ‘race and IQ’ controversies and the emergence of a US BlackPsychology that have reverberations to this day.Graham Richards takes a long-term view of the issues and concerns of research andtheory. By highlighting the ways Psychology emerges from, reflects and participates incontemporary social concerns, the reflexive nature of the discipline is clear. Without thenecessary consideration of these issues, a non-racist Psychology will remain elusive.
