Stereotyping by Michael Pickering
Book DescriptionStereotyping stands in need of serious re appraisal. This book provides a critical assessment of the concept and its use in the social sciences, considering its theoretical basis and historical development and linking these closely to the concept of the "Other". The text embraces such key topics as nationalism and national identity, gender, racism and imperialism, normality and social order, and the figure of the stranger in the modern city. It is genuinely interdisciplinary, moving between sociology, social psychology, cultural history, psychoanalysis and postcolonial theory, and offers an indispensable examination of the roots of prejudice and bigotry in modern societies.

Books By Author Michael Pickering
Compass Dances, Paperback (February 2016)
The Compass Dances is a collection of poems written from 1955 to 2015; the work of almost a lifetime. Influenced by the author's long absence from England, this strikingly original collection provides unique reflection on simultaneously writing in two languages, far away from the familiarity of home.
Photography, Music and Memory, Hardback (October 2015)
This book explores how photography and recorded music act as vehicles or catalysts in processes of remembering, and how they are regarded, treated, valued and drawn upon as resources connecting past and present in everyday life. It does so via two key concepts: vernacular memory and the mnemonic imagination.
Rhythms of Labour, Hardback (April 2013)
The first exploration of the history of music at work in Britain, from pre-industrialisation to the present day.
Mnemonic Imagination, Hardback (July 2012)» View all books by Michael Pickering
An exploration of some of the key theoretical challenges and conceptual issues facing the emergent field of memory studies, from the relationship between experience and memory to the commercial exploitation of nostalgia, using the key concept of the mnemonic imagination.
