The Psychology of Legitimacy: Emerging Perspectives on Ideology, Justice, and Intergroup Relations
John T. Jost, Professor of Psychology John T Jost, Brenda Major
Cambridge University Press, Sep 10, 2001 - Psychology - 477 pages
This book addresses how people think about inequalities of race, gender, class, status, and power, and it focuses on why social inequality is perceived as fair and legitimate. Work on stereotyping and internalization of inferiority helps to explain why the oppressed do not revolt. The book has important implications for leadership and politics and for understanding how businesses and governments maintain their legitimacy to customers and public audiences.
