Brown tackles prejudice from a social psychological perspective,viewing it primarily as a phenomenon originating in group processesbut shaping individuals’ behavior and perceptions. As well aslooking at intergroup dynamics, he outlines all the major researchthat has attempted to understand prejudice, including classicalpersonality accounts, developmental approaches, and socio-cognitiveresearch focussing on categorization and stereotyping. Mostimportantly of all, he assesses research into practical ways inwhich prejudice can be combated and reduced. Throughout, Brownillustrates the text with examples of different kinds of prejudicedrawn from current affairs and everyday life.

Fully updated throughout, this edition includes a new chapter onprejudice from the victim’s perspective, and expansion of thenotions of explicit and implicit manifestations of prejudice.Supported by chapter summaries and suggestions for further reading,this text will be welcomed by both teachers and their students as abalanced and readable introduction to this troubling and persistentsocial phenomenon.
