Abstract: Publisher's description: This text explores two forms of hate and prejudice – racism in contemporary American society and the historical occurrence of anti-Semitism - under a single conceptual framework. The author shows how support for both racism and anti-Semitism can be conceptualized as occurring among four groups: hatemongers, dabblers, sympathizers, and spectators. Levin argues that hate and prejudice continue at a very dangerous level in our society, and that hate typically emanates not from the ranting and raving of a few people at the margins of society, but from ordinary people in the mainstream.
