Summary "The Social Psychology of Inclusion and Exclusion examines the psychology of inclusion and exclusion within relationships between individuals, small groups, and large scale social categories such as nationality and ethnicity. Leading international experts in social psychology explore the impact of being excluded on people's emotions, actions, and reactions." "The volume will be of interest to social psychology researchers, as well as final year undergraduate students and graduate students on a variety of social psychology courses. Its breadth will also appeal to students of intercultural relations, sociology, political science, and even social and public policy. It will also serve as a useful resource for decision makers and social policy officials, and as a tool for social scientists who conduct research on social inclusion and exclusion."--BOOK JACKET
