Coping with Minority Status : Responses to Exclusion and Inclusion, Paperback / softback Book

Coping with Minority Status : Responses to Exclusion and Inclusion Paperback / softback

Edited by Fabrizio (Universite de Lausanne, Switzerland) Butera, John M. (University of Pittsburgh) Levine


Society consists of numerous interconnected, interacting, and interdependent groups, which differ in power and status.

The consequences of belonging to a more powerful, higher-status 'majority' versus a less powerful, lower-status 'minority' can be profound, and the tensions that arise between these groups are the root of society's most difficult problems.

To understand the origins of these problems and develop solutions for them, it is necessary to understand the dynamics of majority-minority relations.

This volume brings together leading scholars in the fields of stigma, prejudice and discrimination, minority influence, and intergroup relations to provide diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives on what it means to be a minority.

The volume, which focuses on the strategies that minorities use in coping with majorities, is organized into three sections: 'Coping with Exclusion: Being Excluded for Who You Are'; 'Coping with Exclusion: Being Excluded for What You Think and Do'; and 'Coping with Inclusion'.
