Stereotypes and prejudice have long been topics of interest in social psychology, but early literature and research in this area focused on affect alone, while later studies focused primarily on cognitive factors associated with information processing strategies.   I can't say it's a bad book, but Hinton rarely speaks of stereotypes -- he speaks more about social identification and categorisation.

Featuring a wealth of real-world examples, it will be essential reading for all students and researchers of stereotypes.

Finally, the finding of intact stereotypes in autism has implications for broader ideas about social cognition.

Stereotypes - structured sets of beliefs about the characteristics of members of social categories - influence how people attend to, encode, represent, and retrieve information about others, and how they judge and respond to them. A comprehensive overview of contemporary research, this volume highlights important approaches that have considerably expanded our understanding of stereotyping in Reviews: 1.   The first half of the book focuses on central aspects of the field of social cognition, including its history and historically important "foundational" research areas (attribution, attitudes, impression formation, and prejudice/stereotyping), methodology, core issues relating to social cognitive representations and processes (including those. ing body of social cognition research on stereotypes to recent cognitive psychological research on implicit memory (cf. E. R. Smith & Branscombe, ). The present treatment of stereo-types also includes new findings that demonstrate this connec-tion, using the methods of implicit memory research to reveal implicit gender stereotypes.   Stereotypes, Cognition and Culture book.
