Brewer is well deserving of all 423 pages. " - Katherine W. Phillips, Columbia Business School, USA, in Administrative Science Quarterly

Through her work on dual process models, optimal distinctiveness, social identity complexity, relational self, trust, dilemmas, and diversity she has transformed our understanding of intergroup relations and the role of social identity in intergroup behavior. This festschrift is a powerful testimony to Brewer’s impact, captured through the eyes of her students and collaborators – all leading figures in the field." - Michael A. Hogg, Claremont Graduate University, USA
