Are stereotypes intrinsically erroneous? Do they have pragmatic
value? What constitutes an adequate social judgement? These and
other questions are answered in this ambitious book, which both
advances a novel perspective and provides a coherent overview of
key arguments and empirical developments in research on
stereotypes. Following a definition of stereotypes, the authors
cover a wide range of literatures and theoretical perspectives to
present a comprehensive critique of the subject. The text - which
has a preface by Susan Fiske - reviews the classical work on
psychodynamic and authoritarian theories through to contemporary
sociocultural research. Additionally, the authors offer a close
analysis of key theoretical approaches including social identity
theory, social cognition and self-categorization theory, and
explore relevant cross-cultural issues.
