Editorial Reviews


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

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

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 disciplines to bear on her argument.--Journal of the History of the Behavioral Sciences

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

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

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


In a fascinating analysis, Rose explores the relationship between an emerging scientific enterprise and the regional culture within which it developed. In addition to its substantive contribution, Psychology and Selfhood in the Segregated South is well written and extensively researched, weaving together information from an impressive range of sources, and leavening the analysis with illustrative histories of individuals. This interdisciplinary work should be of interest to scholars in history and in the social sciences.--William Tucker, author of The Funding of Scientific Racism: Wickliffe Draper and the Pioneer Fund

|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
