"This outstanding volume is more than just a well-written and
entertaining homage to the work of Gordon Allport, arguably one of
the most influential and insightful students of prejudice in the
20th century. In addition, this book has managed to assemble most
of the leading scholars in the field and induce them to think
clearly and succinctly about our present state of knowledge and to
sketch out the several theoretical issues that remain to be
clarified by future research. The overall result is a volume that
is simply a tour de force and a “must read” for anyone
seriously interested in deepening their understanding of the
frustratingly complex issues of prejudice and intergroup conflict
in the modern world." James Sidanius, UCLA
“Even while acknowledging that Gordon Allport continues to
dominate the agenda for prejudice research, this volume's
contributions reveal many new insights based on the original and
wide-ranging research of the authors - often calling for revision
of Allport's thinking.” Anthony G. Greenwald, University
“The idea of building an edited volume around
Allport’s classic book is brilliant, and the timing could not
be better.” Marilynn Brewer, Ohio State
"This book is an impressive addition to the literature in social
psychology... certainly an excellent 'one stop-shop' for mainstream
social psychology research on prejudice." Kenneth McKenzie,
Trinity College, Dublin. Social Psychologyical Review, April
"All in all, there can be no doubt that Gordon Allport laid the
foundation for research on prejudice. However, we think the editors
and authors of this volume have successfully built on that solid
base by adding their own theoretical and empirical layers, ones
that further strengthen the field’s knowledge for the
future." American Journal of Psychology
