In contrast to other disciplines, social psychology has been slow in responding to the questions posed by the issue of ethnicity.The Social Psychology of Ethnic Identity demonstrates the important contribution that psychology can make.

The central aim of this book is to show, on the one hand, that social psychology can be used to develop a better understanding of ethnicity and, on the other hand, that increased attention to ethnicity can benefit social psychology, filling in theoretical and empirical gaps. Based on recent research, The Social Psychology of Ethnic Identity brings an original approach to subjects such as:

* ethnic minority identity: place, space and time
* hyphenated identities and hybridity
* self-descriptions and the ethnic self.

The combination of diverse approaches to this burgeoning field will be of interest to social psychologists as well as those interested in issues of identity, ethnicity and migration.
