Samenvatting

Stereotyping - the process of perceiving and reacting to people in terms of their group membership - is a widespread phenomenon, and one of the most widely investigated topics in social psychology. This new book is about the causes and consequences of stereotyping. It begins from the premise that, in order to understand the nature and function of stereotyping, it is essential to understand its role in, and relationship to, the activities of social groups. In so doing, it provides an alternative to more cognitive approaches that regard stereotyping primarily as a bias produced by the limits of individual information processing.The contributors debate and challenge a range of traditional beliefs about stereotyping by exploring its social functions in intergroup contexts. They also tackle a range of thorny problems in sterotyping and related literatures: including the question of sterotype accuracy, why stereotypes develop and are widely shared, and how stereotypes and sterotyping impact upon people's self-esteem and self-definition. In short, this book examines how stereotypes are structured by social identities and the relations between groups.

Recensie(s)

''... it is a 'must read' for all who are looking for an up-to-date and in-depth analysis of social stereotypes and stereotyping.'' Thomas Eckes, Bergische University, Germany ''This is a volume that should be read-and definetly will be talked about-by all researches interested in stereotyping and intergroup relations. The research and theoretical developments presented demand a profound reassessment, their social consequences, and the ideological functions served. This excellent collection of chapters represents a major leap forward in our understanding of stereotyping processes from an intergroup perspective.'' Professor Nyla R. Branscombe, University of Kansas
