The Psychology of Prejudice and Discrimination provides a comprehensive and compelling overview of what psychological theory and research have to say about the nature, causes, and reduction of prejudice and discrimination. It balances a detailed discussion of theories and selected research with applied examples that ensure the material is relevant to students. Newly revised and updated, this edition addresses several interlocking themes, such as research methods, the development of prejudice in children, the relationship between prejudice and discrimination, and discrimination in the workplace, which are developed in greater detail than in other textbooks. The first theme introduced is the nature of prejudice and discrimination, which is followed by a discussion of research methods. Next comes the psychological underpinnings of prejudice: the nature of stereotypes, the conditions under which stereotypes influence responses to other people, contemporary theories of prejudice, and how values and belief systems are related to prejudice. Explored next are the development of prejudice in children and the social context of prejudice. The theme of discrimination is developed via discussions of the nature of discrimination, the experience of discrimination, and specific forms of discrimination, including gender, sexual orientation, age, ability, and appearance. The concluding theme is the reduction of prejudice. An ideal core text for junior and senior college students who have had a course in introductory psychology, it is written in a style that is accessible to students in other fields including education, social work, business, communication studies, ethnic studies, and other disciplines. In addition to courses on prejudice and discrimination, this book is also adapted for courses that cover topics in racism and diversity. For additional resources, consult the website, which focuses on pedagogical materials that can be used to address both cultural awareness and self-awareness of prejudice and to increase students’ multicultural competence. Specifically, the site includes: Original teaching activities (ready to use with minimal preparation, including discussion questions) An annotated list of podcasts (categorized by topic) An annotated list of videos (categorized by topic) A set of social justice songs (categorized by topic) Four original public service announcements 16 video diaries about people’s personal experience with prejudice Interviews with 13 social justice activists

How the Bible Begins: A Sociological Study uses a Dramaturgical Approach, borrowed from Erving Goffman. This theatrical metaphor has readers imagining society like a play in five acts: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy. The curtain goes up in Genesis to an empty, dark stage that, shortly afterwards, has its first performers appear—Adam, and then Eve. The foundation of this book rests on six fundamental questions which are answered within its pages: who, what, when, where, why, and how. Readers learn how many people populate each biblical book, each book’s theme, when events took place, where action happened, what each book’s purpose was, and how each book was composed. These books chronicled the passage of travelers who first departed Mesopotamia in search of the promised land, and later they left Egypt after four hundred years of slavery. Guided by God, these people formed a nation out of these epic journeys.

This book is a collection of many talks and writings of Vincent N. Parrillo, a professor of sociology, Fulbright scholar, and internationally renowned expert on immigration and intergroup relations. He gave dozens of invited lectures on three continents, frequently under the sponsorship of the U.S. State Department through its programs in the U.S. Information Agency (USIA) and the International Information Program (IIE). In representing the United States abroad, he was interviewed through numerous radio, television, and newspaper outlets, including Radio Free Europe and Voice of America. In addition, other speaking engagements came from universities in Asia, Canada, and Europe, some of these as the keynote speaker at international conferences. He was also a visiting scholar in Belgium, the Czech Republic, England, and Italy. Numerous U.S. newspapers also called upon him for his commentary on current events. His reputation, both in his homeland and abroad, primarily came from his journal articles and books that mostly centered on the themes of assimilation, diversity, or multiculturalism. As his public presentations and writings increased, they generated still more speaking invitations that in turn led to many being transcribed and printed in various scholarly publications. Many, but not all, of these writings have been included here. A unique and multidimensional person, Parrillo expanded his horizons into other fields of endeavor. He wrote, narrated, and produced six television documentaries for PBS, so popular that they were aired repeatedly and DVD copies were in heavy demand. He drew from his insights into Ellis Island and immigration to write two historical novels, He also acted in, or directed, dozens of plays—comedies, dramas, and musicals—for a number of community theaters in northern New Jersey. This collection is an effort to capture at least a part of his insights and observations that he presented to a worldwide public.
