1 Understanding Prejudice and Racism

  • Published 2006


It is fitting to begin Chapter 1 of this book with this quotation from Gordon W. Allport, who in 1954 published The Nature of Prejudice, undoubtedly one of the most important books of the 20th century. In the more than 50 years since the publication of this classic work, hundreds of articles, books, films, and documentaries on the subject of prejudice and racism have appeared. Unfortunately, despite a worldwide focus on the topic, prejudice and racism remain as prevalent today as they did during Allport’s lifetime (1897–1967).
