Spanning four volumes, the first edition of The Psychology of Prejudice and Discrimination provided a much-needed cornerstone work on one of the most crucial issues in the United States today. This updated and condensed edition of the award-winning set is a streamlined yet rich and insightful look at the mechanisms of prejudice and discrimination in practice.
Editor Jean Chin and contributors from across the nation offer insight into how discrimination in American society is rationalized and enacted, as well as how it is experienced by diverse groups. Coverage goes beyond racism to include sexism and the plight of LGBTQ youths, as well as people with disabilities. Updates include a new introduction and conclusion presenting developments, successes, and failures in fighting prejudice and discrimination since the original set was published.
- 17 contributors bring diverse and differing perspectives on prejudice and discrimination
- Each chapter concludes with a "Toolbox for Change" section, which proposes strategies for eliminating prejudice and discrimination
