Looking to the Future

This is an incredibly useful reference text. It provides a comprehensive range of theories and factors that contribute to a broader understanding of the role power plays in stereotyping. Several authors pose questions to support students to evaluate additional factors to improve understanding of prejudice, stereotyping and discrimination.

The text is not suitable for the level of teaching or subject. The focus of the course is more on the sociological aspects of discrimination rather than the positivist/psychological approach adopted in the text albeit a good resource.
