About the book:
This collection brings together the latest ideas of a distinguished set of authors, all of whom worked with Henri Tajfel in Bristol. Each has been profoundly influenced by Tajfel, an influence which has encouraged a diversity of approaches, as well as the development of social identity theory itself. Students, academics and professionals will find in this book the living debate around the developing ideas which are Tajfel's legacy. It is also a fitting tribute to Henri Tajfel, which acknowledges and builds on his major contribution to social psychology in Europe.
