Abstract: Publisher's description: This book is the first comprehensive reader to offer an up-to-date, multidisciplinary examination of hate crimes. Editors include articles from a variety of disciplines, including criminal justice, criminology, sociology, psychology, and political science. With introductions, discussion questions, and resource lists, this unique anthology combines the most current research on hate crimes with accessible articles from scholarly and legal journals in a single, easily understood format. Incorporating a variety of perspectives, the book examines: policy issues and legislation, offenders and organized hate groups, victims and the impact of hate crimes on individuals and groups, hate crime prevention efforts, international issues of hate crime. Developed as a companion to Gerstenfeld’s "Hate crimes : causes, controls, and controversies", this innovative reader will provoke thought and discussion in undergraduate and graduate students in criminology, criminal justice, and sociology courses.
