Product description


'Discrimination in Childhood and Adolescence is a welcome contribution to the field! This book demonstrates that prejudice and discrimination begin in childhood, whereas prior books on the problem of discrimination have mostly focused on the phenomenon in adulthood. Brown does an excellent job integrating the developmental research and theory produced over the last 20 years, and uses developmental intergroup theory to provide the reader with a conceptual framework for understanding how and why prejudice and discrimination emerge, and how they affect children's and adolescents' development. Importantly, she presents empirically based strategies for reducing prejudice and discrimination. Brown has written a very engaging book, which I expect will capture and sustain the interest of many students, researchers, educators, and policymakers.' - Campbell Leaper, University of California, Santa Cruz

'This book is a much needed and exemplary resource for individuals interested in youth and discrimination. Written in a clear, accessible manner by a leading researcher of children’s experiences with and views of discrimination, the coverage is unique in its scope. Brown provides a comprehensive review of what is known in the field of psychology about the antecedents and consequences of youth’s perceptions of discrimination based on race, gender, ethnicity, immigrant status, sexual minority status, and other social categories. Brown’s compassion for youth and commitment to social justice are evident in her work, which most certainly will inspire future scientific progress in an area that is crucial for understanding child development.' - Rebecca Bigler, The University of Texas at Austin
