Abstract:

"This book examines social psychology's unique contribution to our understanding of intergroup relations, examining interactions from the level of individual psychological processes to the behavior of large social groups. It focuses on the cognitive and motivational processes that gives rise to group identity, intergroup discrimination and conflict." "Intergroup Relations uses historical and contemporary examples to illustrate abstract concepts, including different types of social groupings - ethnic, religious, political and linguistic. Coverage in each chapter includes historical perspectives, current theory, methodological paradigms, emerging issues and policy applications."--Jacket.
