Synopsis

Understanding the Psychology of Diversity by Bruce Evan Blaine

Featuring chapters on traditional prejudice topics such as categorization and stereotypes, sexism, racism, and social stigma, Understanding the Psychology of Diversity is a wide-ranging textbook that covers the cognitive and emotional underpinnings of prejudice attached to all forms of inequality. Mixed in with this content are further chapters that explore newer and more nontraditional diversity topics, such as sexual-orientation and social class-based prejudice, weight and appearance-based prejudice, and diversity on television. A number of student-friendly features appear in this text, including: - 'Diversity Issue' boxes, spotlighted in each chapter, centre around recent issues, or research findings related to prejudice or social stigma. - 'Making Connections' questions interspersed throughout chapters stop readers and encourage them to think more deeply about issues/ concepts just covered. - Summaries, Key Terms in the text and at the beginning of chapters, Further Readings and interesting Websites are also all included. Understanding the Psychology of Diversity is the perfect textbook for courses on the Psychology of Diversity, Prejudice, Stereotyping and Discrimination as well as Race and Gender.

Reviews

'The students targeted by this book need not be on a psychology programme as no prior knowledge of psychology is assumed, but psychology students could be well served in that the book embeds the psychology of prejudice in the realities of current lives. it is certainly a book which those teaching in this area would find useful as a resource book...I would recommend the book on account of the diversity of diversity issues addressed, the rigorous grounding in the academic literature, and the interesting and well-researched weblinks , diversity issues, readings and the occasional film to watch'
