From the Back Cover
The Psychology of Prejudice,
Todd D. Nelson’s newly revised and updated text, offers students an in-depth look at the roots of prejudice based on empirical literature and current research. Nelson pairs comprehensive coverage of the material with an approachable and conversational writing style, making the text accessible for students. With its applied focus, The Psychology of Prejudice
challenges readers to think critically and formulate personal opinions about issues such as ageism, sexism, and racism. The improved pedagogical features of the second edition of the text, including summary sections at the conclusion of each chapter, will only improve students’ understanding of this important discipline.
New Features of the 2nd Edition:
- New sections on sexist humor and the neurobiology of prejudice
- Expanded coverage of research on homosexuals, the overweight, and the physically-challenged
- Updated section on implicit stereotyping and prejudice
I think this is a very good text on prejudicewell-written, entertaining, stimulating, and informative.

The text is written in a manner that is both interesting and empirically-based. My students really seem to enjoy reading the text.
