Format: Paperback
While reading this book you can see how it has served as an inspiration for some of our more contemporary African psychologists today. There are a few case studies that could've been explored a little deeper or have a little more depth. However, when they hit, they hit perfectly. Their analysis of the "intra-psychic" dynamics of Black life in everyday America is extremely insightful. Their observations on Black / White sex within this societal's framework is outstanding just as well. Overall, the book holds up, isn't dated and should be read by everyone.

I've haven't read a book in a long time that made me think as much as this one has. Although it's dated, it's more relevant now than ever. Super deep. I will read a chapter and put the book down to marinate on what I read, and usually end up reading the chapter over when I do pick it back up. Still not done reading it, when I usually knock out books this size in a few hours.

I bought this book for clinical insight from an African American psychologist perspective due to the fact that black scholarship and intelligencia is not respected within the social service industries of counseling, recovery and therapy. I have not finished reading it but, I am well pleased thus far. My elders tell me it is a classic read and I believe needs to be mandatory reading for all in the Jr. and Senior High school levels before they encounter the realities in the workforce. Can't lose buy !

This book is a classic. It truly helped me as a White to understand the ongoing impact on race relations of the dynamics that were created in slavery. It is particularly helpful in understanding how slavery dynamics are played out in cross-racial sexual relationships. The only flaw is that it is HOPELESSLY sexist, reflecting the gender stereotypes of 1968. This sexism rises to such a level that parts of the book are difficult to read. Because of this, I have stopped using it as a required book for my classes, but still, this book helped me to personally understand the adaptive responses of African-Americans given our oppressive system.

In 2014 we still have a long ways to go with racism and its backlash. The book makes some very important points that must be understood if there is to be progress made in our life time. This book in dealing with the Black Americans crosses all borders of a people oppressed with its message.
