    Dr. Degruy really unpacks her thesis with military precision. She presents a compelling narrative on how to understand the unique legacy of the racist trans-Atlantic slave trade and its psycho-social implications on post-colonial societies. It's a must read!

    What can I say. This is a wonderfully written insight into PTSS. Reading the book basically unlocked all of the "now I know whys" that I live through. Albeit it is written from an African American point of view me as a first generation English from Caribbean descent it will make sense to us too! So pleased. Let the healing begin!

    An excellent, eye opening read, which is a necessary for everyone within the African diaspora. Whilst reading this I did not want the book too end, as Dr Joy Degruy touched on so many underlying truths which are embedded deep within the psyche of the African man & woman. The Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome is real, and needs to be addressed from the earliest age possible as to avoid racist socialization.I think that this book could be improved by relating this syndrome, not just to African-American's, but also African-Caribbean's & African's in South America. I love the authors emphasis on the importance of reclaiming our African identity, however I would love to see a more structured economic approach as to how African people can build institutions which teach us our history.

    I'm not sure I can suitably express just how significant this research will prove to be, not just for the people of African descent who have lived through the absolute horrors of the African Holocaust, and still are, but also for the descendants of those who need to desperately avoid the guilt they feel and go to great lengths to do so, regardless of the consequences to those who still suffer to this day and the damage they are unknowingly inflicting on themselves and their descendants. This is important and ground breaking research that should one day be accepted and acknowledged by the European political and medical establishments, no matter which part of the globe they reside.
