'Illuminat[es] the necessity of diverse approaches for tackling this ‘complex human problem’ that is prejudice. … Allport ‘demonstrated that it is possible for social science to contribute to the understanding and resolution of social problems and at the same time be value-oriented and socially sensitive’, and showed how ‘social scientists must be the contemporary custodians of such enduring human values as justice’. Sibley and Barlow’s (2017) handbook echoes these principles in a theoretically and empirically grounded, impressive, well-written, must-read volume.'
