“Previous collections on international psychology . . . have provided historical perspective, but with these essays Brock offers a more critical and nuanced treatment.”
“;The history of psychology is at the forefront of the struggle to re-vision the discipline as a genuine set of global and diverse maps. Instead of a uniform topography where only certain features count, and the only places worth studying are those that are home to the original map-makers, this book offers a new cartography for those willing to invest in different landscapes of psychology. For those who wish to glimpse the future of psychology, there is no better place to begin than with this historical volume.”
-—Henderikus J. Stam,University of Calgary and editor of the journal Theory & Psychology
“These essays . . . offer perspectives on hitherto off-the-map psychologies, as developed in China, India, Argentina, and Turkey, as well as interrogate ‘Western’ psychology. . . . A thought-provoking book!”
“A welcome corrective to the texts that place North America at the center of the intellectual universe. The volume uses an international perspective to illuminate important topics for all countries, including psychology's relation to liberal democracy, the psychologizing of social relations, and psychology's role in cultural imperialism. . . . An illuminating guide to the history of psychology.”
-—Benjamin Harris,University of New Hampshire
