This book is about the social psychological dynamics and phenomenology of social inclusion and exclusion. The editors take as their starting point the assumption that social life is conducted in a framework of relationships in which individuals seek inclusion and belongingness. Relationships necessarily include others, but equally they have boundaries that exclude. Frequently these boundaries are challenged or crossed. The book will draw together research on individual motivation, small group processes, stigmatization and intergroup relations, to provide a comprehensive social psychological account of social inclusion and more

Review quote

"This volume spans the full range from global to personal analysis of people in the process of including and excluding each other. The editors have assembled an impressive array of experts who shed light on people in (and out) of groups. Policy implications leap out from every chapter. A crucial book for all of us concerned with the current, unprecedented intergroup challenges to the human social condition." - Susan T. Fiske, Princeton University "The Social Psychology of Inclusion and Exclusion is an important and timely publication. With 14 pointed chapters written by leading social psychologists, this edited volume provides a summary of where the intergroup field stands at present. I especially like the focus on social inclusion and exclusion at all three levels of analysis - micro-individual, meso-group, and macro-societal. Thus, this volume covers the effects of exclusion from laboratory studies on individuals to survey studies of Northern Ireland. In short, this volume can be highly recommended for all who are concerned with intergroup phenomena." - Thomas F. Pettigrew, University of California at Santa Cruzshow more
