What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"This top-notch, readable authority on modern prejudices explainshow groups target people as interchangeable category members,through a socially shared lens shaped by conflict and power. Brownexpertly confronts today's multi-cultural challenges."
Susan T. Fiske, Princeton University

"In the 15 years since the publication of the first edition ofthis book, there have been many exciting advances in the study ofprejudice. Rupert Brown's well-written second edition ofPrejudice expands his earlier volume with a straightforwarddescription of these new advances. This welcome addition to theshelf of social psychological books is now the definitive text ofchoice on the subject. Moreover, with its 800+ item bibliographyand new theoretical ideas, it can also be highly recommended forthe specialist."
Thomas F. Pettigrew, University of California, SantaCruz

"Brown's original book, Prejudice, became theauthoritative standard text in its field. Fifteen years on and thatfield has expanded massively yet this new edition remains asuperbly written, comprehensive, excellently organised andthoroughly absorbing survey of the social psychology of Prejudice.It has been worth waiting for."
Dominic Abrams, University of Kent
