In the first comprehensive textbook on prejudice with a strong psychological research base, Whitley and Kite cover a broad range of topics including race and ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and ageism. By integrating theory and research with students' own experiences, the authors increase students' awareness of influences that shape prejudices. As students are asked to evaluate research results and their personal, subjective beliefs, they develop an appreciation of scientific evidence regarding stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination.

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.
