From the Back Cover:

The nature of society is rapidly changing. Traditional social,cultural and geographic boundaries are being replaced withincreasingly complex representations of identity. We are requiredto confront new ways of partitioning our social worlds, and this inturn creates new questions and demands for social scientists andpolicymakers.

This volume offers, for the first time, an integrated approachto these questions and demands, exploring the psychologicalimplications and applications of new forms of social and culturaldiversity. Leading scholars from a diverse range of perspectiveshave been brought together to focus on the psychology of diversity.They discuss research from a wide range of sub-disciplines,including social identity, social cognition, creativity,self-confidence and stereotype threat, prejudice, intergroupcontact, biculturalism, and organizational behavior.

The volume documents advancements in the field and exploresconverging links between research programs examining this criticalsocial issue. This book offers a crucial understanding of thepsychology of social and cultural diversity in the 21st centurythat directly addresses social intervention and policyimplications, and which calls for an enduring understanding andappreciation of the value of social and cultural diversity.
