Hatred, Bigotry, and Prejudice: Definitions, Causes & Solutions (Contemporary Issues)

Hatred, Bigotry, and Prejudice: Definitions, Causes & Solutions (Contemporary Issues) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The kidnaping and beating death of a gay University of Wyoming student; the dragging death of a black man in Jasper, Texas, by advocates of "white pride" — these two isolated incidents of violent crime occurred in 1998, not 1898, and are painful reminders that bigotry and prejudice stubbornly remain well entrenched in American culture.<P>What, in today's seemingly enlightened society, compels a bigot? How do prejudice and hatred emerge, and sometimes lead to such horrific violence? What can be done to overcome this subversive social undercurrent?<P>Updated and augmented with new essays on crimes against religious groups, gay bashing, and current court cases, this is a concise and relevant collection of essays that pinpoints the definitions, origins, and outcomes of intolerance in America.

Synopsis:

An armed assault on a Jewish community center in Los Angeles, synagogues set ablaze in Sacramento, the shootings of ethnic minorities in Illinois, the murder of a gay couple in northern California-these hate crimes have all been linked to white supremacists and are painful reminders that violent bigotry remains stubbornly entrenched in American culture.

What, in today's seemingly enlightened society, compels a bigot? How do prejudice and hatred emerge, and sometimes lead to such horrific violence? What can be done to overcome this subversive social undercurrent? This concise and relevant collection of essays explores the definitions, origins, and outcomes of intolerance in America.
