Overview

Prejudice is one of the most enduring and widespread social problems facing the world today. This book tackles prejudice from a social psychological perspective, and contributes to both its understanding and its reduction. Throughout the book readers are introduced to the major theoretical and empirical achievements in the field in a lively and interesting fashion. The author emphasizes the social nature of prejudice, viewing the phenomenon primarily as an intergroup phenomenon, one rooted in particular societal settings and shared amongst the members of different groups in those settings. Both classic and contemporary research is presented and illustrates, and the book includes many examples from contemporary life and different kinds of prejudice. Each chapter also concludes with a summary of the main points, together with suggestions for further reading. Rupert Brown’s new book will be welcomed by both teachers and their students as a balanced and readable introduction to this important topic.
