"Tom Pettigrew’s research and writing has had a major impact on our understanding of prejudice, its causes and cures. This remarkable volume is both a tribute to Pettigrew’s influence and an extension of its reach. A must read for anyone interested in intergroup relations." Elliot Aronson, author of The Social Animal, Nobody Left to Hate, and Mistakes were Made (But Not By Me)"This remarkable book brings together the world’s leading scholars of intergroup relations to pay tribute to the seminal work of Thomas Pettigrew, and in so doing to derive essential lessons for academics, politicians, and the public in general."
–Douglas S. Massey, Princeton University
"Tribute and treat, this exciting collection celebrates social psychologist Tom Pettigrew’s great impact on our understandings of prejudice, discrimination, and intergoup contact. Highly readable articles integrate well, offering a well-etched portrait of Pettigrew’s many contributions to research on racial emotions, intergroup adaptation, deprovincialization of ingroups, and context effects. Once expelled from school for standing up to a bigoted teacher, Pettigrew’s scholar-activist commitments to eradicating racism have been influential and equal to those of any social scientist of the last half century."
–Joe R. Feagin, Texas A & M University
