"Garcia does an amazing job of condensing a topic and clearly sparking the dialectic for continued expansive discourse. This volume fills a void in exposing the psychologically informed critical vision vis-à-vis literary artists in the mid-20th century."

"Psychology Comes to Harlem stages an acute and potentially highly productive intervention in scholarship on the history of representations of African Americans."

"Garcia provides a compelling narrative of the changing uses of psychological discourses in literary and critical social analyses from the 1940s to the 1960s. A strength of the book is the deftness with which Garcia moves across genres... The research for this monograph is clearly rigorous and thorough and Garcia handles a large body of secondary sources skillfully... Psychology Comes to Harlem is a worthy addition to the bookshelf of any student or scholar interested in the intellectual context of mid-20th-century antiracist novelists and social commentators."
