One of the most globally recognised sub-disciplines of social psychology is the field of intergroup relations, which has a strong relationship with both sociology and political science given its preponderance with themes such as prejudice, discrimination, multiculturalism and the relationship between social groups. This new four-volume major work presents a comprehensive and authoritative collection of both classic and contemporary readings in intergroup relations. Each volume is opened by an introductory chapter which provides the reader with an overview of the primary topics covered therein, and the rationale behind the editor and rsquo;s selection. Whilst the volumes are organized around the broad research themes of intergroup relations, the papers are carefully structured so that together they tell the story of how intergroup relations research has evolved within social psychology. Volume One: Cognitive ProcessesVolume Two: Motivation and IdeologyVolume Three: Emotion, Neuroscience and EvolutionVolume Four: Improving Intergroup Relations

After a three-year term as Head of School, in 2012 he moved to the University of Sheffield. His research has covered the full range of topics that comprise social psychology: from studies on the formation and reduction of prejudice, to the self and identity processes involved in interpersonal relations, from studies of mere exposure and attitude formation, through to studies of social categorization.
