The Cambridge Handbook of the Psychology of Prejudice: Concise Student Edition aims to answer the questions: why is prejudice so persistent? How does it affect people exposed to it? And what can we do about it? With cutting-edge research from top scholars in the field, the chapters present an overview of psychological models of prejudice and investigate key domains such as racism, sexism, and the criminal justice system. This student edition of the award-winning Handbook includes new pedagogical features such as learning objectives, core terms and definitions, summary points, discussion questions, recommended reading, and an instructor's test bank. It also features a new conclusion chapter that analyzes eight hard problems currently faced by researchers and activists, thus engaging students in deep, forward-thinking discussion. Developed specifically for use in Psychology of Prejudice courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels, the Concise Student Edition is an essential teaching and learning resource.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'For those who want to work toward a nuanced understanding of prejudice, this Handbook is essential reading: a comprehensive, provocative, and thoughtful examination of why people are prejudiced, who is targeted, and what to do about it. This is a one-of-a-kind resource that will be indispensable to anyone engaged in the difficult business of teaching, researching, learning about, or challenging intergroup bias.' Matthew Hornsey, University of Queensland, Australia
'This is a terrific book: comprehensive, authoritative, and current. The chapters cover traditional as well as cutting-edge topics in the psychology of prejudice in a highly accessible way. The final chapter on the 'eight hard problems' facing the scientific study of prejudice and its reduction is a gem. I highly recommend this book for both students and scholars interested in the psychology of prejudice.' Brenda Major, University of California, Santa Barbara
'This book is a scholarly delight ... a superb blend of foundational theories (and theorists) that have shaped our understanding of prejudice, and contemporary approaches that take this classic work in exciting new directions. This student edition will be an excellent resource for the classroom.' William von Hippel, Head of the School of Psychology, University of Queensland, Australia
'Barlow and Sibley have connected an outstanding group of scholars in the science of prejudice to produce an exceptional student edition. Importantly, this volume offers students and researchers a ready-made curriculum that integrates theoretical perspectives on prejudice with practical exercises that deeply engage the reader in the real-world challenges of prejudice. A must for all readers intent on improving their understanding of the multiple layers of prejudice, now and into the future.' Fiona White, University of Sydney, Australia
'The book offers itself as a great package to students and teachers in providing strong conceptual understanding of the phenomenon of prejudice in terms of the different shades of meanings that are attributed to the term, the various theoretical frameworks for scientifically studying the phenomenon explaining its emergence and the factors that lead to its sustenance over a period of time from unique perspectives, and the impact it has on the variety of targets have been well addressed.'
