Stereotyping and prejudice : changing conceptions( Book )

11 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 623 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Traditionally dictated by the times, the definitions and theories regarding stereotypes and their ramifications have now taken on a decidedly cognitive emphasis. Representing this present trend in thought within social psychology, Stereotyping and Prejudice offers a diverse perspective on the cognitive approach, from the rather broad analysis of categorization of individuals to a discussion of intergroup relations in Israel. The contributors offer not only a resource for understanding the metamorphosis in the theories of stereotyping and prejudice, but a new look to future directions

15 editions published between 1988 and 2009 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Group beliefs : a conception for analyzing group structure, processes, and behavior by Daniel Bar-Tal( Book )

15 editions published between 1989 and 2011 in English and held by 421 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Individuals who live in groups hold common beliefs which define their reality, not only as persons, but also as group members. This reality becomes especially important when group members become aware that they share beliefs and are convinced that these beliefs characterize them as a group. In this case common beliefs become group beliefs." With this statement, Dr. Bar-Tal begins his far-reaching analysis of beliefs as a group phenomenon. Group beliefs are shown to have important behavioral, cognitive, and affective implications for group members and the group as a whole. They may contribute to the behavioral direction a group takes, coordinate group activities, determine the intensity and involvement of group members, and influence the way group members affect the leaders. This book introduces and articulates the implications of a new concept of group beliefs, shedding new light on the structure and processes of groups, focusing on such phenomena as group formation, subgrouping, splits, mergence and group disintegration. By taking an interdisciplinary approach, this integrative conception opens new avenues to the study and understanding of group behavior

Stereotypes and prejudice in conflict : representation of Arabs in Israeli Jewish society by Daniel Bar-Tal( Book )

21 editions published between 2004 and 2009 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In spite of this recognition, no systematic analysis of the stereotypes and prejudice was carried out in real conflict situations. The book tries to fill this void by applying a general and universal conceptual framework to the study of the acquisition and development of stereotypes and prejudice in a society involved in an intractable conflict. It presents a systematic, comprehensive, and coherent analysis of evolvement, institutionalization, maintenance, functions, and consequences of stereo types and prejudice in a society involved in intractable conflict."--Jacket
How children understand war and peace : a call for international peace education by Amiram Raviv( Book )

10 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 322 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If we had a better grasp on how children and adolescents develop ideas of war, conflict, and peace, would it be possible to consciously influence these concepts toward more peaceful orientations? Would it then be possible to integrate these psychological findings into educational programs throughout the world?" "How Children Understand War and Peace is a landmark book that examines these two vital questions and provides a solid framework on which to build answers." "How Children Understand War and Peace is an indispensable guide for psychologists, educators, and anyone concerned with building a solid foundation for a more peaceful world through knowledge and education."--Jacket
The impacts of lasting occupation : lessons from Israeli society( Book )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2015 in English and Hebrew and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Protracted occupation has become a rare phenomenon in the 21st century. One notable exception is Israel's occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, which began over four decades ago, after the Six-Day War in 1967. While many studies have examined the effects of occupation on the occupied society, which bears most of the burdens of occupation, this book directs its attention to the occupiers. The effects of occupation on the occupying society are not always easily observed and are therefore difficult to study. Yet through their analysis, the authors of this volume show how occupation has detrimental effects on the occupiers. The effects of occupation do not stop in the occupied territories, but penetrate deeply into the fabric of the occupying society. The Impacts of Lasting Occupation examines the effects that Israel's occupation of Palestinian territories has had on Israeli society. The consequences of occupation are evident in all aspects of Israeli life, including its political, social, legal, economic, cultural, and psychological spheres. Occupation has shaped Israel's national identity as a whole, in addition to the day-to-day lives of Israeli citizens. Daniel Bar-Tal and Izhak Schnell have brought together a wide range of academic experts to show how occupation has led to the deterioration of democracy and moral codes, threatened personal security, and limited economic growth in Israel"--
Intergroup conflicts and their resolution : a social psychological perspective by Daniel Bar-Tal( Book )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book provides a framework that sheds an illuminating light into the psyche of people involved in macro-level destructive intergroup conflicts, involving societies and ethnic groups, that take place continuously in various parts of the globe. It focuses on the socio-psychological repertoire that evolves in these societies or groups and which plays a determinative role in its dynamics. Specifically, this repertoire influences the nature of social reality about the conflict that society members construct, the involvement with and mobilization of society members for the conflict, the sense of solidarity and unity they experience, the conformity expected from society members, the pressure exerted on leaders, and the direction of action taken by the leadership. In addition, the book describes the changes in the socio-psychological repertoire that are necessary to ignite the peace process. Finally, it elaborates on the nature and the processes of peace building, including conflict resolution and reconciliation. The proposed conception assumes that although each conflict has its unique context and characteristics, the socio-psychological foundations and dynamics are similar. It offers a holistic and comprehensive outlook on the dynamics that characterize each stage and aspect of intractable conflicts. Each chapter systematically elucidates a particular part of the cycle, describing the theoretical frameworks and concepts, as well as presenting empirical data that was accumulated. The volume is an important contribution for all those who study intergroup conflicts and want to understand their dynamics. In addition, the book will interest the many people attempting to settle conflicts peacefully and who need knowledge about the socio-psychological vectors that influence their course and resolution
Intractable conflicts : socio-psychological foundations and dynamics by Daniel Bar-Tal( Book )

17 editions published between 2009 and 2016 in English and held by 200 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book provides a comprehensive, interdisciplinary, and holistic analysis of the socio-psychological dynamics of intractable conflicts. Daniel Bar-Tal, Ws original conceptual framework is supported by evidence drawn from different disciplines, including empirical data and illustrative case studies.

He describes a full cycle of intractable conflicts, U their outbreak, escalation, and reconciliation through peace building. Bar-Tal, Ws framework provides a broad theoretical view of the of the socio-psychological repertoire that develops in the course of long-term and violent conflicts, outlines the factors affecting its formation, demonstrates how it is maintained, points out its functions, and describes its consequences. The book also elaborates on the contents, processes, and other factors involved in the peace building process."

The social psychology of intractable conflicts( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Daniel Bar-Tal is one of the most influential scholars in the study of the social-psychological aspects of intractable conflicts. He has made an immense contribution to the fields of social and political psychology by studying the development, in times of intractable conflict, of a socio-psychological infrastructure that consists of shared societal beliefs of ethos of conflict and collective memory. This volume, the first of two honoring the legacy of Dr. Bar-Tal, explores Dr. Bar-Tal's theory of a specific social-psychological infrastructure that develops from cultures immersed in intractable conflicts. Containing chapters by many leading social, political, and peace psychologists, this volume demonstrates the influence and contribution of Dr. Bar-Tal's work to recent developments in the study of the social-psychological aspects of intractable conflicts. It explores the contents of the socio-psychological infrastructure, the processes through which these contents are acquired and maintained, their functions, the societal mechanisms that contribute to their institutionalization, as well as their role in the crystallization of social identity and development of a culture of conflict. Significantly, intractable conflict is presented here as a system of processes that reinforce each other and support the pathological growth of the conflict. By demonstrating that it can be applied to various kinds of intractable conflicts in various places of the world, the volume argues that the theory is transferable and universal. Moreover, the volume aims to exhibit new connections and integrations between Dr. Bar-Tal's theories and other prominent theoretical frameworks in social and political psychology. Presenting both a comprehensive overview of works that have been influenced by Dr. Bar-Tal's theories and research, as well as a wide gate to future studies that will connect Dr. Bar-Tal's work to recent theoretical developments in related domains, Understanding the Social Psychology of Intractable Conflicts: Celebrating the Legacy of Daniel Bar Tal is an important text for all those interested in developing a sustainable, peaceful world.

The Role of Trust in Conflict Resolution : The Israeli-Palestinian Case and Beyond by Ilai Alon( Book )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Built on the premise that trust is one of the most important factors in intergroup relations, conflict management and resolution at large, this volume explores trust and its mechanisms and operations especially in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Significantly, this volume focuses not only on the nature of trust and distrust in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, but it also explores how it is possible to build and increase trust on both sides in the conflict, a necessity in order to advance the stalled peace process. As trust is a concept that is interdisciplinary by nature, so are this volume’s contributors: sociologists, philosophers, social psychologists, political scientists, as well as experts in the Middle East, Islam, Judaism and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict bring together real multidisciplinary perspectives that complement each other and then provide a comprehensive picture about the nature of trust and distrust and its ramifications and implications for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Divided into five thematic parts, the volume begins with by examining the theoretical basis of trust research from multiple perspectives. Then, it presents chapters on trust, distrust, and trust-building in other conflicts around the world. The third part is a unique feature of this volume as it takes a contextual approach: it emphasizes the importance of particular cultural and religious considerations on both sides of the conflict. The thrust of the book is examined in the next section. Part IV discusses and analyses various aspects of trust, and specifically distrust, in the context of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Significantly, the chapters of this part take the perspectives of the participants in the conflict: Israeli Jews, Palestinians and Israeli Arabs. Finally, the volume concludes by providing an integrative conceptual perspective based on the principles of social and political psychology. An important goal of this volume is to not only explore trust and distrust in an intractable conflict, but also to provide practical multi-disciplinary outlooks and implications to advance trust building in two conflict ridden societies—Israeli and Palestinian, and other societies around the world.

The Social psychology of intergroup conflict : theory, research, and applications by Wolfgang Stroebe( Book )

4 editions published between 1988 and 2012 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The area of intergroup relations and social conflict has once again become a major focus of social psychological theorizing and research. One of the consequences of this advance in knowledge is that social psychologists have increasingly been called upon to apply their ideas in order to advise on existing conflicts. The significant contribution of this book is the way it builds on the research and theory of intergroup conflict and then applies this knowledge to the field. The areas discussed include industrial conflicts, interethnic conflicts and intergroup conflicts. The chapters range from reports of experimental laboratory research, through field studies, to theoretical-conceptual contributions. The new advances offered by this broad spectrum of topics will be of interest not only to social psychologists, but also to sociologists and political scientists
