"Provides an accessible review of social psychological theory on prejudice, emphasizing that prejudice is determined by factors at several levels of analysis. For example, prejudice is linked with competition and inequality between groups, and it can be fostered by religious and political ideologies that shape attitudes. The book integrates research on reducing prejudice, with an emphasis on intergroup and institutional strategies. It also discusses collective action to promote social justice, the most effective kinds of prejudice-reduction programs, and possible unintended consequences of such programs. With its thoughtful analysis, numerous real-life examples, and provocative content, this book will appeal to students and their educators, as well as researchers, surveying or investigating the field of prejudice and diversity"--Publisher description.
