From the reviews of the first edition:
"Teo traces the modern critiques of psychology. … Catching the eye are parts of the post colonial critiques, which provides insight into the institutionalized racism of early psychological researchers … . This is an academic book that provides a useful historical guide to the major criticisms of the psychological theory over the last two centuries." (Jeremy Dean, The Psychologist, Vol. 19 (12), 2006)
