Description

Product Description

The classic psychological study of the roots of discrimination.

First published in 1954, The Nature of Prejudice remains the standard work on discrimination. With profound insight into the complexities of the human experience, Harvard psychologist Gordon Allport organized a mass of research to produce a landmark study on the roots and nature of prejudice. Allport''s comprehensive and penetrating work examines all aspects of this age-old problem: its roots in individual and social psychology, its varieties of expression, its impact on the individuals and communities. He explores all kinds of prejudice -- racial, religious, ethnic, economic and sexual -- and offers suggestions for reducing the devastating effects of discrimination.

In this unabridged edition, a new introduction by Kenneth B. Clark of Columbia University and a new preface by Thomas Pettigrew of Harvard University update the social-psychological research in prejudice and attest to the enduring values of Allport''s original theories and insights.

Review

"One of the most influential and often-cited publications in the entire field of intergroup relations."― Irwin Katz, Political Psychology

" The Nature of Prejudice is a remarkable mixture of careful scholarship and humane values ... The book has influenced an entire generation of social psychologists, and deservedly so..."― Elliot Aronson, Human Nature Magazine

"Probably the most comprehensive study of all aspects of this problem which has yet appeared."― Journal of Personality

"A profound book ... As a source of study, it is a library in itself."― Christian Herald

From the Back Cover

I first read this in college (late 60''s and early 70''s) at the time of Watts and Wilmington, DE riots. The treatments on the Nazi mindset was still relevant. My family schooled me to be a fine racist and I wanted to break from that mold. With the emergence of Black Lives Matter, I felt I had to review my attitudes again and understand the attitudes and beliefs of the White Supremist, skin heads, Ultra-right and some Evangelical Christians. I am even better informed now about myself and others and the formation of destructive attitudes and acts of violence. READ IT, it matters and has no political agenda. - A 70 year old white man who is still trying to learn.

The delivery was very fast and product in excellent shape. Yes, a classic and though outdated with examples, Gordon Allport''s sociological and psychological research and insights say it all. However, chapter 13, ''Theories of Prejudice'' and chapter 16, ''The Effect of Contact'' are most appropriate lessons for today. It has been said, this is the authoritative work on the topic and I believe it is true.

Very good read
Reviewed in the United States on January 30, 2018
This book was purchased for a graduate class of mine. It is very interesting, appealing, and teaches so much on social issues revolving racism. I was intrigued the entire time, while angered at the social injustices mentioned. I highly recommend this book.

Whilst some of the language and examples are deeply rooted in the time when this book was written and might jar with a modern reader, this is still an exceptional book.
