The first edition of this book was a pioneering work in the newly emerging field of liberation psychology, which is now making its mark in many areas related to psychology and social justice. This revised and updated edition retains the argument and structure of the original edition, charting a journey from the personal to the political. The book draws on foundation writers in feminism and postcolonialism such as Frantz Fanon, Jean Baker Miller and Ignacio Martin Baro, on research and experience in the Irish context, and on the latest international developments in liberation psychology, feminist psychology, critical and community psychology. It provides a structural analysis of oppression that recognizes diversity and globalization and that can be readily adapted to diverse contexts. Exploring psychological aspects of oppression in detail, it then sets out practices for liberation at the personal, interpersonal and political levels.
