"This new edition of Prejudice provides a comprehensive treatment of the subject, introducing the major theoretical ideas as well as providing a critical analysis of recent developments". (Bulletin, 13 January 2011)

"This top-notch, readable authority on modern prejudices explains how groups target people as interchangeable category members, through a socially shared lens shaped by conflict and power. Brown expertly confronts today's multi-cultural challenges."
Susan T. Fiske, Princeton University

"In the 15 years since the publication of the first edition of this book, there have been many exciting advances in the study of prejudice. Rupert Brown's well-written second edition of Prejudice expands his earlier volume with a straightforward description of these new advances. This welcome addition to the shelf of social psychological books is now the definitive text of choice on the subject. Moreover, with its 800+ item bibliography and new theoretical ideas, it can also be highly recommended for the specialist."
Thomas F. Pettigrew, University of California, Santa Cruz

"Brown's original book, Prejudice, became the authoritative standard text in its field. Fifteen years on and that field has expanded massively yet this new edition remains a superbly written, comprehensive, excellently organised and thoroughly absorbing survey of the social psychology of Prejudice. It has been worth waiting for."
Dominic Abrams, University of Kent
