'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.'
