Item description for NATIONAL AND ETHNIC STEREOTYPES IN CENTRAL & EASTERN EUROPE (Ercomer Monographs) by Edwin Poppe...
National and Ethnic Stereotypes in Central and Eastern Europe deals with intergroup relations in some Central and Eastern Europe countries after the collapse of state socialism at the end of the 1980s. More than a thousand young people in Russia, Belarus, Bulgaria, Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic were asked to attribute certain characteristics to their own national group, five fellow Central-Eastern European nationalities, three well-known Western European nationalities (German, English, Italian) and the largest ethnic minority group with a history of ethnic antagonism in their country. Contrary to prevailing assumptions, the analyses of the survey results show that stereotypes are not irrational but reflect more or less realistic differences between groups. The author examines whether social psychological and sociological theories such as social identity theory, self-categorization theory and scapegoat-theory are useful to explain and understand the content of national and ethnic stereotypes and changes in these stereotypes over time.
