In the first comprehensive book on prejudice with a strong psychological research base, Whitley and Kite cover a broad range of topics—from race and ethnicity to gender, sexual orientation, and ageism. By integrating theory and research with readers' own experiences, the authors increase awareness of influences that shape prejudices. As readers evaluate research results and their personal, subjective beliefs, they develop an appreciation of scientific evidence regarding stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination.
