The Psychology of Modern Prejudice $150.00
Editors: Melanie A. Morrison (Dept. of Psychology, Univ. of Saskatchewn, Canada) Todd G. Morrison, (Dept. of Psychology, National Univ. of Ireland, Galway)
Book Description:
Modern prejudice refers to the subtle negative attitudes that are directed toward stigmatized groups such as African-Americans and gay men and lesbian women. Individuals categorized as high in modern prejudice deny the existence of discrimination against stigmatized groups; believe that demands made by these groups are unfair; assert that social institutions accord disproportionate attention to such groups; and reject their efforts to change the status quo. Stated simply, the ethos of an individual high in modern prejudice is: "Discrimination is a thing of the past because groups now have all the rights they need." social scientists have devoted considerable attention to studying modern prejudice; however, no book has provided comprehensive coverage of this topic-until now. It also offers students and academics, as well as the interested layperson, a thorough review of modern prejudice; a construct that is at the centre of some of the most innovative studies currently conducted by psychologists.
