Russell Spears, Nicole Tausch

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


Prejudice and discrimination can take many forms, from the extreme to the almost banal. The Holocaust, the genocides in cambodia and Rwanda and the 'ethnic cleansing' in the former Yugoslavia, are clear examples of the extreme forms. A man who leaps to the aid of a woman who seems to be hsving problems with het computer can also be accused of a form of prejudice, although he (or even she) might not recognize it as such.
