Ethnocentrism and Intergroup Relations.
LeVine, Robert A.; Campbell, Donald T.
Proposed as a chapter for a book, this document has attempted to survey the various points at which cognitive congruity theories impinge upon problems of ethnocentrism and intergroup relations. Some dozen such predictions have been presented, and have been italicized for scanning in the text. One hypothesis, that the more similar the outgroup the more it is liked, has been given extensive review including new, albeit secondary, data analysis. Other hypotheses receiving more than brief mention deal with the balance among regional sets of intergroup valences, the effects of forced compliance in the colonial and post colonial organization of territories upon group identification, and the resolution of incongruities in group esteem produced by contact with modern economic systems.
