About the Authors
  • The Cambridge Handbook of the Psychology of Prejudice aims to answer the questions: why is prejudice so persistent? How does it affect people exposed to it? And what can we do about it? Providing a comprehensive examination of prejudice from its evolutionary beginnings and environmental influences through to its manifestations and consequences, this handbook is an essential resource for scholars and students who are passionate about understanding prejudice, social change, collective action, and prejudice reduction. Featuring cutting-edge research from top scholars in the field, the chapters provide an overview of psychological models of prejudice; investigate prejudice in specific domains such as race, religion, gender, and appearance; and develop explicit, evidence-based strategies for disrupting the processes that produce and maintain prejudice. This handbook challenges researchers and readers to move beyond their comfort zone, and sets the agenda for future avenues of research, policy, and intervention.

    • Brings together chapters on prejudice from often disparate theoretical perspectives
    • Features cutting-edge research on racial, sexual, and appearance-based prejudice, and demonstrates that while prejudice is pervasive, the way that it manifests (and why it persists) can differ depending on the target
    • Concludes with a real-world example of anti-racist activism, with Jane Elliott describing the genesis of her 'Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes' anti-discrimination intervention in the wake of the assassination of Dr Martin Luther King, Jr

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Sibley and Barlow's comprehensive volume includes an impressive array of cutting-edge theory and research on prejudice from the major scholars in the field. In addition to the usual gender- and race-based prejudice, the authors address heterosexism, fat oppression, and religious prejudice.' Kristin J. Anderson, University of Houston, Downtown

    'This book is a scholarly delight … a superb blend of foundational theories (and theorists) that have shaped our understanding of prejudice and contemporary approaches that take this classic work in exciting new directions. I recommend it to anyone with even the slightest interest in the topic.' William von Hippel, University of Queensland

    'For anyone needing to wrap their head around the current thinking on prejudice, this is the perfect one-stop shop. Contains the biggest names, with the biggest ideas in the field.' Matthew Hornsey, University of Queensland

    'Illuminat[es] the necessity of diverse approaches for tackling this 'complex human problem' that is prejudice. … Allport 'demonstrated that it is possible for social science to contribute to the understanding and resolution of social problems and at the same time be value-oriented and socially sensitive', and showed how 'social scientists must be the contemporary custodians of such enduring human values as justice'. Sibley and Barlow's (2017) handbook echoes these principles in a theoretically and empirically grounded, impressive, well-written, must-read volume.' Becky L. Choma, Arvin Jagayat, David Sumantry and Vashisht Asrani, Social Justice Research Journal

    'A large proportion of the material in this book will mainly be of interested to academics. I would warmly recommend it to all academic libraries catering for work in psychology, social psychology, sociology, politics, etc. The subject ought to be of wide general interest.' Martin Guha, Reference Reviews

    'This work is essential for collections dealing with social psychology and the topic of prejudice and discrimination in all forms.' CHOICE

    '[An] impressive, well-written, must-read volume.' Social Justice Research
