This volume surveys the existing research into Africentric Psychology. It presents a cogent discourse on selected issues fundamental to this re-emerging discipline. This ground-breaking collection of studies is expected to heighten public recognition of the intrinsic worth and positive human potential of an Africentric approach to psychology. Professionals, whether engaged primarily in theory, research, or practice, will welcome the freshness and depth of vision this anthology affords into the history and teaching of psychology, into the methodology of culture-specific research, into the peculiar predicament of the African American, into the effects of oppression and the very nature of human personality. Students of psychology, at every level, will find in this book valuable and proactive alternatives to the prevailing Eurocentric analyses. It will not only broaden their knowledge base but will begin to reverse the awful effects of miseducation.'
