Editorial Reviews

This is a most impressive and original work: it would not be far-fetched to see it as a kind of landmark in British psychology. - David Ingleby, University of Utrecht, The Netherlands It is an ambitious, far-reaching enquiry. - Stuart Hall The Open University, Milton Keynes To take on psychology and its critics is a big order. No one person could do it as effectively alone. I am impressed by the hard work of this dedicated group. - Contemporary Psychology
