Intergroup Relations

Four Volume Set
Edited by:

April 2014 | 1 400 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

One of the most globally recognised sub-disciplines of social psychology is the field of intergroup relations, which has a strong relationship with both sociology and political science given its preponderance with themes such as prejudice, discrimination, multiculturalism and the relationship between social groups.

This new four-volume major work presents a comprehensive and authoritative collection of both classic and contemporary readings in intergroup relations. Each volume is opened by an introductory chapter which provides the reader with an overview of the primary topics covered therein, and the rationale behind the editor’s selection. Whilst the volumes are organized around the broad research themes of intergroup relations, the papers are carefully structured so that together they tell the story of how intergroup relations research has evolved within social psychology.

Volume Two: Motivation and Ideology
Volume Three: Emotion, Neuroscience and Evolution

"This compendium of “must read” research papers in intergroup relations has been put together by one of the field’s leading experts. It has been carefully organized into a series of integrative volumes and sections that address intergroup relations from a variety of distinct but complementary perspectives. This is an essential resource for students in the area."

"One of the key challenges to social psychologists is to understand, explain, and promote intergroup relations. This 4-volume compilation of 58 articles--both classic and contemporary--will enable graduate students and scholars to have an overview of the empirical and theoretical advances in the field. Professor Crisp has done a superb job of selecting the most appropriate pieces that accurately reflect how the field of intergroup relations has been growing since 1958."
