Summary: This comprehensive, research-based text examines the major theories of prejudice and stereotyping through an engaging narrative that reads like a well-crafted story rather than an empty series of statistics.

Though the focus of this book is on empirical studies, author Todd D. Nelson has synthesized the data and presented it in a way that will excite readers. The goals were two-fold: To create a strong central text (as opposed to a collection of readings) f
or professors teaching a course in prejudice, and also to facilitate student interest in the subject. The Psychology of Prejudice is intended to stimulate critical thinking about what causes, maintains, and reduces prejudice and stereotyping, while also relaying the historical background on the birth of research on stereotypes.

Features
  • Comprehensive presentation of theories of prejudice and stereotyping.
  • Focus on up-to-date, empirical studies from the field.
  • Includes cross-cultural research and data.
  • Considers prejudice from a social cognition perspective.
  • Entire chapters devoted to Sexism (Ch. 8) and Ageism (Ch. 9); and Ch. 4 deals with religious prejudice.
  • End-of-chapter discussion questions facilitate critical thinking and in-class dialogue.
  • Clear, engaging writing style keeps material from growing dense or stale.
New To This Edition
  • Over 230 added references.
  • New section on sexist humor.
  • Section on the neurobiology of prejudice.
  • More extensive list of great web links on prejudice.
