This book provides an integrative overview of current research in a previously neglected area: interpersonal discrimination. Chapters focus on common, face-to-face discriminatory behaviors including derision, exclusion, and ignoring of others based on their gender, race, sexual orientation, class, age, or a combination thereof. Critically reviewing the theory and empirical research in each area, the volume explores the complex relationship between beliefs, attitudes, and behavior, with special attention throughout to the implications for public policy.
