"The Neuroscience of Prejudice and Intergroup Relations presents cutting-edge research by leading international scholars. The volume is accessible to students and scholars both in intergroup relations and in neuroscience, but more importantly demonstrates to both groups the unique value and novel insights that can be derived from an integrative analysis. It sets a scholarly agenda in this area for many years to come."
John F. Dovidio, Ph.D., Yale University 

"Social neuroscience attempts to bring together social psychology's two essential elements: the mind 'in here' and the world 'out there'. Doing this properly especially when tackling the gritty realities of prejudice and conflict is no easy task for it is fraught with dangers of both method and theory. Happily, though, this book brings together the world's leading researchers in the field, and, collectively, they do a magnificent job of recognising and overcoming these challenges. Especially noteworthy are the candid insights that the book provides into the complexities of this task, as experienced by front-line researchers 'on the ground'. The result is a landmark book that will define and illuminate the field for decades to come."
-- Alex Haslam, Ph.D., University of Queensland, Australia

"The search for the antecedents and consequences of prejudice, discrimination, and stereotyping has been one of the most important in social psychology for more than six decades. This book represents an important step forward in this historical pursuit and underscores how social neuroscience is shedding new light on age-old questions and problems."
-- John T. Cacioppo, Ph.D., The University of Chicago
