Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hate crimes-violence aimed at individuals because they are members of a particular group-were once considered the rare illegal actions of a small but vocal assortment of extremists who thrived on hating minorities. No more. In this new book by two of the country's leading experts on hate crimes, published ten years after their classic book of the same name, these most-recognized authorities and media commentators reinterpret this scourge of our generation-hatred based on race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, and even citizenship. In the aftermath of the worst act of terrorism in this country's history-the bombing of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001-the authors probe the causes and characteristics of such acts of hatred and, most vitally, their consequences for all of us.

Book News Annotation:

The authors of (1993) take another look at the subject. Particular attention is paid to violence based on nationality and country of origin, which appears to be on the rise following the terrorist attacks of September 11. Levin and McDevitt (both Northeastern U.) argue that hate crimes hurt not only the victim but damage society as a whole.
