Book Description

The theories or programs of research described in the chapters of this book move beyond the traditional evaluation model of prejudice, drawing on a broad range of theoretical ancestry to develop models of why, when, and how differentiated reactions to groups arise, and what their consequences might be. The chapters have in common a re-focusing of interest on emotion as a theoretical base for understanding differentiated reactions to, and differentiated behaviors toward, social groups. The contributions also share a focus on specific interactional and structural relations among groups as a source of these differentiated emotional reactions. The chapters in the volume thus reflect a theoretical shift from an earlier emphasis on knowledge about ingroups and outgroups to a new perspective on prejudice in which socially-grounded emotional differentiation becomes a basis for social regulation.

"Mackie and Smith have assembled an impressive line-up of leading scholars who share and interest in affective and emotional dimensions of intergroup phenomena. This book is a timely and quite original integration of diverse strands of research that address the 'hot' dimension of intergroup behavior--a dimension that has until recently taken the back seat to an emphasis on cognitive processes and structures. By bringing this work together, Mackie and Smith have done the field a great service in setting a clear agenda for this new emphasis in the social psychology of intergroup behavior." -- Michael A. Hogg, University of Queensland
