This textbook by Whitley and Kite (both of Ball State U.) aims to provide undergraduate students with an overview of psychological research and theory on the nature, causes, and amelioration of prejudice and discrimination. It covers the standard topics, but was also written with the goal of covering important topics not found in similar texts. To this end, the authors have included chapters on research methods and how methods influence conclusions about the issues studied, the development of prejudice in children, and the nature of discrimination and its relationship to prejudice.
