Minority influence and innovation : antecedents, processes and consequences by Robin Martin( )

Social groups form an important part of our daily lives. Within these groups pressures exist which encourage the individual to comply with the group's viewpoint. This influence, which creates social conformity, is known as 'majority influence' and is the dominant process of social control. However, there also exists a 'minority influence', which emerges from a small subsection of the group and is a dynamic force for social change. Minority Influence and Innovation seeks to identify the conditions under which minority influence can prevail, to change established norms, stimulate original thinking and help us to see the world in new ways. With chapters written by a range of expert contributors, areas of discussion include: processes and theoretical issues the factors which affect majority and minority influence interactions between majority and minority group members This book offers a thorough evaluation of the most important current developments within this field and presents consideration of the issues that will be at the forefront of future research.

Advances in intergroup contact by Gordon Hodson( )

15 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 649 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Intergroup contact remains one of the most effective means to reduce prejudice and conflict between groups. The past decade has witnessed a dramatic resurgence of interest in this time-tested phenomenon, with researchers now focusing on understanding when, why, and for whom contact does (and does not) work. This new volume focuses on one of the hottest topics in the social sciences: prejudice. Covering not only basic principles but cutting-edge findings and theoretical directions, key questions surrounding this subject are addressed, such as: How perceptions of other groups lead to anxiety and avoidance; How cross-group contact influences the development of prejudice in children; Whether highly-prejudiced people benefit from contact; How status and power influence the effectiveness of contact. In addition to exploring methodological challenges facing contact researchers, attention is devoted to prejudice interventions that are rooted in our understanding of contact effects. These range from zero-acquaintance contact to intimate cross-group friendships, and even involve simulated contact experiences. This volume draws together world-renowned experts in prejudice and intergroup contact to provide a long-awaited update on the state of affairs in intergroup contact research. As well as synthesizing and integrating the key topics, it also provides possible new directions for future research. Given the prominence of contact as a powerful prejudice-reduction tool, this book is a must-read for students and scholars of social psychology and sociology, as well as policy-makers and practitioners
