Even the rat was white: a historical view of psychology
Racism in psychological treatment is still happening today!
-- This subject affects everyone in our society. It is of particularl interest to psychologists, family therapists, sociologists, social workers, and members of the legal profession.
-- Diversity is the topic at this year's American Psychological Association (APA) convention held in Chicago in mid-August.
-- Discover why the concerns of psychologists who questioned biased research were ignored, and learn about the hardships faced by minority psychologists.
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 attitudesinfluenced 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.
