Abstract: 

Beyond the Masks is an incisive and readable account of back subjectivity, exploring the role of power relations in the production of academic discourse. Amina Mama examines the history of imperial psychology, and the way in which the discipline has propagated racism. Beyond the Masks also offers an important theoretical perspective, and will appeal to all those studying ethnicity, gender and questions of identify.
