Home-Grown Hate: Gender and Organized Racism (Perspectives on Gender)by Abby L. Ferber
Synopses & Reviews
Are all terrorists men? Why are most school shooters teenage boys? What role do women play in the spread of hatred? Many books, news programs and magazine articles have examined the rise and activities of extremist and white supremacist groups; however, the role of gender in right-wing ideology has been almost completely overlooked. The original essays in this collection explore the link between gender and racism in a variety of racial and white supremacy organizations, including white separatists, the Christian right, the militia/patriot movements, skinheads and more. Abby Ferber brings together the leading voices studying hate groups to investigate ways that gender influences the hate crimes that we read about in the papers and see on the news. "Home-Grown Hate" is an important and timely contribution that advances our understanding of these hate groups, analyzes their movements and sets the agenda in developing strategies to prevent the further proliferation of hate.
The top names in the field come together in this collection with original essays that explore the link between gender and racism in a variety of racial and white supremacy organizations, including white separatists, the Christian right, the militia/patriot movements, skinheads, and more.
