Prejudiced Communication: A Social Psychological Perspective
This volume offers a social psychological perspective on many different forms of prejudiced communication, including derogatory group labels, condescending verbal and nonverbal behavior, hostile humor, and skewed portrayals of outgroup members in the news and entertainment media. The author illuminates the functions that these behaviors serve for individuals, groups, and entire cultures, and examines how they contribute to the perpetuation of stereotypes, discrimination, and status differences. Also discussed are the strengths and limitations of various approaches to reducing prejudiced communication in its subtle and not-so-subtle forms. The book is filled with thought-provoking examples drawn from everyday life.
