Book Description

Promoting a scholarly understanding of the psychology of social and cultural diversity in the early stages of 21st century, this volume encourages an in-depth appreciation of the value in diversity while directly addressing social intervention and policy implications.
  • Offers, for the very first time, an integrated approach to the issues raised by  increasingly complex representations of social identity
  • Explores the psychological implications and applications of new forms of social and cultural diversity
  • Includes research from a diverse range of scholars that covers a broad spectrum of sub-disciplines
  • Discusses how the applications of multiculturalism and diversity research can encourage more positive intergroup relations
  • Develops an in depth understanding and appreciation of the value of social and cultural diversity

Product Description


"I would recommend this book for use as core reading for a graduate–level course in the psychology of ethnic, social, or cultural diversity or as supplementary reading for a course on cross–cultural psychology or human diversity. It will be a useful addition to any course within one of these areas." (PsycCRITIQUES, 16 March 2011)


"Diversity is a fact of life as well as a necessity for evolution. Is diversity a precursor to hostility, a recipe for conflict, and anathema to productivity? Or, is diversity an opportunity for creativity, evolution, and greater human possibilities? How do we harness this critical juncture? Readers will find themselves struggling with these momentous questions together with the most qualified researchers on the topics. A must read for social psychologists who acknowledge their responsibilities for the emerging global human society."
Yoshihisa Kashima, The University of Melbourne

"This excellent compilation of papers offers much food for thought for theorists and researchers navigating the ever changing landscape of identity, culture and intergroup relations."
Richard Lalonde, York University

I had to read this for a class, and while some of the chapters are very well written others are not. It is not unusual for a textbook to be a collection of articles, but usually they are of a more consistent quality. There were a couple of chapters that seemed quite impenetrable. Problems specifically related to the Kindle version are spelling errors and a lack of page numbers as well as a detailed table of contents. Unfortunately I was not able to rent this title on Kindle, but I prefer digital textbooks so I bought it. Easier on my back if not my budget. Bottom line, some good some bad in here but not a well arranged Kindle offer.
