"Changing the Subject" is a classic critique of traditional psychology in which the foundations of critical and feminist psychology are laid down. Pioneering and foundational, it is still "the" groundbreaking text crucial to furthering the new psychology in both teaching and research. Now reissued with a new foreword describing the changes which have taken place in the discipline over the last few years, this book will continue to have significant impact on thinking about psychology and social theory.

Industry 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
