Abstract: This is the first reader to bring together the essential readings on hate and bias crimes by the top-names in the field including Kathleen Blee, Jack McDevitt, James Jacobs, Valerie Jenness, Randy Blazak and Abby Ferber. 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.
