This is the first comprehensive textbook 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.

As students evaluate research results and their personal, subjective beliefs, they develop an appreciation of scientific evidence regarding stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination.
