`This is an outstanding contribution to the field of liberation psychology. Moane leads the way in integrating psychological, cultural, and political oppression. She links personal emancipation with collective liberation in theoretical and practical ways. I urge all psychologists and individuals committed to promoting well-being with justice to read this book. Like the first edition, this volume is rich in scholarship and inspiration.'---Isaac Prilleltensky, Erwin and Barbara Mautner Chair in Community Well-Being and Dean, School of Education, University of Miami, USA

`In 1999 Geraldine Moane presented a book that was ahead of its time...introducing not only the idea of liberation as it was being developed in psychology, but also showing how it could be applied. Now Moane, in this new version of that work, is including the advances created around the world during the past ten years...up-to-date information about the psychology of liberation...[and] the levels of change (personal, interpersonal and political) produced in the application of psychology with a liberating orientation, along with a discussion about the transformations happening in both individuals and society.'---Maritza Montero, Universidad Central de Venezuela, South America

`Drawing on community, critical, peace, human rights, and gay-lesbian psychologies as framed by liberation and feminist struggles the author demonstrates the dialectic of personal and structural transformations as they have been envisioned and engaged through political struggle...a rare and important contribution to liberation and feminist psychologies from the English speaking world.'---Professor M. Brinton Lykes, Boston College Lynch School of Education, USA

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, bell hooks and lgnacio 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 an integrated analysis of oppression and liberation that recognizes diversity and globalization, and sets out a model and specific guidelines for practice for individuals, groups and communities that can be readily adapted to diverse contexts. It is a book that can transform lives and help to shape a better future for us all.

'This is an outstanding contribution to the field of liberation psychology. Moane leads the way in integrating psychological, cultural, and political oppression. She links personal emancipation with collective liberation in theroretical and practical ways. I urge all psychologists and individuals committed to promoting well-being with justice to read this book. Like the first edition, this volume is rich in scholarship and inspiration.' - Isaac Prilleltensky, Erwin and Barbara Mautner Chair in Community Well-Being and Dean, School of Education, University of Miami, USA

'In 1999 Geraldine Moane presented a book that was ahead of its time in the sense that it was introducing not only the idea of liberation as it was being developed in psychology, but also showing how it could be applied. Now Moane, in this new version of that work, is including the advances created around the world, during the past ten years. The readers will find an ample revision of the current situation of liberation within psychology, connecting it, as before, with the theory and practice of feminism and with the colonialism critique, whose processes and practices are analysed. Particularly interesting is the way the author generates a praxis (practice producing theory; theory giving way to practice), showing how engaged work with oppressed and excluded groups can be carried out; something especially useful for practitioners and researchers. Thus, the reader will also find in this book not only up-to-date information about the psychology of liberation, but about the levels of change (personal, interpersonal and political), produced in the application of psychology with a liberating orientation, along with a discussion about the transformations happening in both individuals and society.' - Dr Maritza Montero, Universidad Central de Venezuela, South America

'Drawing on community, critical, peace, human rights, and gay-lesbian psychologies as framed by liberation and feminist struggles the author demonstrates the dialectic of personal and structural transformations as they have been envisioned and engaged through political struggle. The Irish experience that grounds this deeply theoretical analysis makes this book a rare and important contribution to liberation and feminist psychologies from the English speaking world.' - Professor M. Brinton Lykes, Boston College Lynch School of Education, USA
