Prejudice pervades our society in many guises, from pejorative remarks to acts of violence. Communicating Prejudice explores the many dimensions of prejudice. It presents a new and integrative conceptual model of prejudice, the layered perspective of cultural intolerance, and uses this model to analyze the communication of prejudice in a variety of spheres such as racism, sexism, homophobia, ageism, and classism. Drawing on multidisciplinary perspectives, the first two chapters present the model and theoretical foundation for the book, and subsequent chapters deal with specific foci of prejudice, including personal prejudice and prejudice in relationships, organizations, and the media. Included is a series of personal narratives to illustrate specific types and instances of prejudice. This book will be useful as a supplementary text in upper-level undergraduate and graduate-level courses examining issues of race, gender, and ethnicity.
