Editorial Reviews


"This well-researched study of the psychological sciences in the first six decades of the twentieth-century South is a subtle and original contribution to southern studies. . . . [It] deserves the attention of all scholars interested in the intellectual and cultural history of the modern South or in the history of the human sciences in the twentieth century."--American Historical Review

"Rose deals with tremendous breadth of material, and she brings an impressive array of sources from a variety of disciplines to bear on her argument, which will interest students and scholars in history as well as psychology."--Choice

"[A] rich and thoughtful book. . . . The argument presented here is exquisite and original."--Church History

"A fascinating book. . . . A valuable contribution to southern intellectual history."--H-Net Reviews

"An unusual history because it is at once a history of a region, of a discipline, and of race. . . . The breadth of material with which [Rose] deals in this short volume is tremendous, and she brings an impressive array of sources from a variety of discip

"A comprehensive historical narrative of the field's development in one unjust society." --Arkansas Review

"Creative and thought-provoking….[Rose's] work makes an original contribution to the study of southern distinctiveness….A work that also contributes to intellectual history, the history of education, and scholarship on social science in the South." --Southern Historian

"[A] detailed history. . . . Fascinating. . . . Will be read by historians interested in the impact of racial segregation . . . in the South."--Journal of Southern History

"By giving us a comprehensive historical narrative of the field's development in one unjust society, Rose enables us to glimpse the essential dynamic by which social forces construct such instinct everywhere."--Arkansas Review

"Rose's lens is wide, and her research is deep. . . . A compelling contribution to the intellectual history of the South and the social sciences."--The Journal of American History

Book Description

"This book is the best, most thorough exploration of southern identity and the complications of race through the prism of psychology--without a hint of pseudo-scientific jargon. Anne Rose is a masterful writer and deep thinker, as this study shows so well. Psychology and Selfhood in the Segregated South must be acclaimed as a major landmark in the probing of what W. J. Cash called 'the mind of the South.'"--Bertram Wyatt-Brown, author of The Shaping of Southern Culture: Honor, Grace, and War, 1760s-1890s
