Overview

In the past two decades, the study of social stereotypes and prejudice has become one of the central issues in social sciences in general and in social psychology in particular. One reflection of this growing interest is the focus on shared stereotypes and prejudice, which are considered as sociocultural products. The primary reason for this development is the recognition that both stereotypes and prejudice play a determinative role in shaping intergroup relations. In situations of conflict, they simultaneously are outcomes of the accumulated animosity between the involved groups and feed on the continuation of the conflict by furnishing the cognitive-affective basis for the mistrust and hostility between the parties. In spite of this recognition, no systematic analysis of the stereotypes and prejudice was carried out in real conflict situations. The book tries to fill this void by applying a general and universal conceptual framework to the study of the acquisition and development of stereotypes and prejudice in a society involved in an intractable conflict. It presents a systematic, comprehensive, and coherent analysis of evolvement, institutionalization, maintenance, functions, and consequences of stereo types and prejudice in a society involved in intractable conflict.
