Edited by experts in the field and contributed to by leading American and international scholars on the topic, this new book is one of the first to elucidate the unique particular developmental and social features of race and racism in children's lives. Chapters explore a variety of models of racism and prejudice including cognitive developmental; evolutionary and genetic; sibling, peer, and parental socialization; social psychology; moral development; social identity; and ethnic identity. The book focuses on the growing research being conducted on the social and cognitive development of children's notions and attitudes regarding race and the implications of this development for adolescence and functioning across a variety of social and personal domains.
