Hate and Bias Crime: A Reader Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first reader to focus solely on hate and bias crimesContains articles by the biggest names in the field including, Kathleen Blee, Jack McDevitt, James Jacobs, Valerie Jenness, Randy Blazak and Abby FerberBarbara Perry's In the Name of Hate was a finalist for the 2001 C. Wright Mills Award from the Society for the Study of Social Problems

Synopsis:

After September 11th, a number of Sikh men were targeted and killed; mistaken as Muslims. In Texas, a black man is dragged to death from the back of a pick-up truck. Children at a Jewish daycare center in California are attacked by an anti-Semitic gunmen. In Montana, the young Matthew Shepard was gaybashed and left to die on a deserted roadside.

These are the hate crimes that fill the headlines of the daily newpapers and are graphically detailed on every newscast. Whether motivated by race, gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexuality, hate crimes happen every day and in every state across the country.

"Hate and Bias Crime: A Reader" is the first reader to bring together the essential readings on hate and bias crimes by the top-names in the field. This comprehensive anthology examines hate groups from a global perspective; delves into the issue of minority and violence going way beyond the usual black and white; analyzes the current rise in terrorism; and discusses ways of intervention. It also includes useful statistical information on hate crimes, recent hate crime legislation and anti-hate resources.

Covering everything from women in the Klan and extremist exploits on the Internet to Neo-Nazi rock-n-roll subculture and Black church arsons, this is an important collection that sheds much-needed light on this growing problem.
