The Bigot - Why Prejudice Persists

Author: Stephen Eric Bronner
Publisher: Yale University Press
Category: Social & Political Philosophy, Social Discrimination, Gender Studies, Gender Groups, Ethnic Minorities & Multicultural Studies
Book Format: Paperback

Stephen Eric Bronner is a prolific author, activist, and one of America's leading political thinkers. His new book presents bigotry as a systematic, all-encompassing mindset that has a special affinity for right-wing movements. In what will surely prove a seminal study, Bronner explores its appeal, the self-image it justifies, the interests it serves, and its complex connection with modernity. He reveals how prejudice shapes the conspiratorial and paranoid worldview of the true believer, the elitist, and the chauvinist. In the process, it becomes apparent how the bigot hides behind mainstream conservative labels in order to support policies designed to disadvantage the targets of his contempt. Examining bigotry in its various dimensions?anthropological, historical, psychological, sociological, and political?Professor Bronner illustrates how the bigot's intense hatred of ?the other? is a direct reaction to social progress, liberal values, secularism, and an increasingly complex and diverse world. A sobering look at the bigot in the twenty-first century, this volume is essential for making sense of the dangers facing democracy now and in the future.]]>
