Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Violent and sometimes fatal acts of racial hatred are drawing increasing attention around the nation. Asian American and Asian Canadian authors discuss the impacts of racial crime, exploring the relationship between the physical or verbal acts to issues of ethnic identity, civil rights of immigrants, Internet racism, sexual violence, language and violence, economic scapegoating, and police brutality. They offer suggestions for combating hate crime with coalition building and community resisatnce, as well as legal prosecution and police training. The compelling narratives are a valuable resource for courses in Asian American studies, race and ethnic studies, sociology, criminology, and for anyone who wants to understand racial violence in North America. Visit our website for sample chapters!

Book News Annotation:

Ten essays offer sociological, psychological, and historical perspectives on hate crimes against North American Asians. Hall, an Asian American studies instructor, introduces such themes as the relationship between words (including Internet postings) and violence, ripple effects of such incidents, and hate-crime law limitations. Hwang, an attorney with the Asian Law Caucus in San Francisco, discusses recent responses of a diverse community.

Synopsis:

Horrifying acts of racial violence are drawing increasing attention around the nation. For the first time, voices of Asian Americans and Asian Canadians have been brought together to discuss the multidimensional impacts of crimes and racial hatred in their lives. They reflect on the relationship between these physical or verbal acts and issues of ethnic identity, social history, law, sexuality, language and violence, institutionalized racism, immigration, family, and other issues important to targeted individuals and communities. Because hate crimes span legal, social, and emotional contexts, many of the contributors write in a narrative style that blends personal experience with social theory or political commentary.
