What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Professors Brown and Gaertner have put forward an authoritative treatise of intergroup processes. They have solicited chapters from leading scholars on the cognitive, social, motivational, affective, linguistic, and cultural contingencies that surround intergroup relations. The volume offers lucidly written, cutting-edge perspectives on a most important topic: stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination" Constantine Sedikides, University of Southampton
