Book Overview
Claude M. Steele, who has been called one of the few great social psychologists, offers a vivid first-person account of the research that supports his groundbreaking conclusions on stereotypes and identity. He sheds new light on American social phenomena from racial and gender gaps in test scores to the belief in the superior athletic prowess of black men, and lays out a plan for mitigating these stereotype threats and reshaping American identities.
