    The book was written by Gordon Allport in the early s and first published by Addison-Wesley in Thomas F. Pettigrew and Kerstin Hammann selected, as the book's most lasting contribution, its success in redefining the relation between intergroup contact and prejudice.   And all of this happens outside of our awareness, in the unconscious processes of the mind, research shows. The human tendency to, as the old idiom says, judge a book by its cover, has become a source of extensive psychological study. The science of snap judgments is more than just figuring out what we can tell by looking at each other.

It’s an issue that will probably stay with us for a while—at least until Mars attacks. Human discrimination knows no bounds, and there are many cases of entrenched prejudice within ethnic and national groups as well. 10 Burakumin.

    In the natural sciences, racism can be explained using observable and measureable features of humans. In biology, for example, the human nervous system uses nerve cells to create the connections between race and reactions in the mind.

The ideal way to circumvent such prejudice. But what is more surprising, suggests the science writer Angela Saini in her new book, Superior, is the possibility that science informs prejudice or can be recruited into its service.
