Overview

"'In the 15 years since the publication of the first edition of this book, there have been many exciting advances in the study of prejudice. Rupert Brown's well-written second edition of Prejudice expands his earlier volume with a straightforward description of these advances. This welcome addition to the shelf of social psychological books is now the definitive text of choice on the subject.' Thomas F. Pettigrew, University of California, Santa Cruz" "'Like an adept football manager, Brown has shuffled his pack, updated his resources, and yet retained the essence of the highly successful earlier edition of this book. It is an approachable and enjoyable guide and resource, for both students and scholars.' Miles Hewstone, Oxford University" "'Brown's Prejudice provides a comprehensive perspective on a topic of great improtance, not only to psychologists but also to political scientists, sociologists, and policy makers It is an outstanding text for students, a wonderful review of psychological work on prejudice for anyone interested in this topic, and a valuable resource for researchers in this area.' Jack Dovidio, Yale University" "The second edition of Prejudice provides a comprehensive treatment of the subject, introducing the major theoretical ideas as well as providing a critical analysis of recent developments" "Brown tackles prejudice from a social psychological perspective, viewing it primarily as a phenomenon originating in group processes but shaping individuals' behaviour and perceptions. As well as looking at intergroup dynamics, he outlines all the major research that has attempted to understand prejudice, including classical personality accounts, developmental approaches, and socio-cognitive research focusing on categorization and stereotyping. Most importantly of all, he assesses research into practical ways in which prejudice can be combated and reduced. Throughout, Brown illustrates the text with examples of different kinds of prejudice drawn from current affairs and everyday life." Fully updated throughout, this edition includes a new chapter on prejudice from the victim's perspective, and expansion of the notions of explicit and implicit manifestations of prejudice. Supported by chapter summaries and suggestions for further reading, this text will be welcomed by both teachers and their students as a balanced and readable introduction to this troubling and persistent social phenomenon.
