MEDIA REVIEWS
"President Obama's biracial background serves as a springboard for the revised, condensed edition of this landmark four-volume edition published in 2004. Chin (advanced psychological studies, Adelphi U., Garden City, NJ) introduces 17 chapters presenting diverse theoretical and personal perspectives on sexism, prejudice against sexual and other minorities, and people with disabilities, as well as racism. Updates include a new introduction and conclusion presenting developments, successes, and failures in fighting prejudice and discrimination. Chapters include toolboxes for ways to achieve cultural competence and change at the individual and system levels." - Reference & Research Book News
"Outside academia, practitioners in clinical and counseling psychology are especially likely to find this volume valuable, as are psychiatrists and social workers and potentially educators and policymakers....The latest edition of The Psychology of Prejudice and Discrimination serves as a timely reminder that the discipline of psychology remains relevant to the understanding and improvement of intergroup relations, despite the claim by some political commentators that the election of President Obama stands as proof that the United States is postracial. Moreover, Chin's latest edition simultaneously indicates how far the United States has come and how far the United States has to go in fulfilling its own egalitarian creed." - PsycCRITIQUES
