'This is a very thought provoking volume which will be of great interest to anyone concerned to understand and combat prejudice and hate in our society. We have much to learn from the American experience.' SCOLAG Journal, November 2005

As an emerging domain of law, the field of hate crimes is changing rapidly. Staying current with the wide-ranging social and legal aspects of hate crimes is essential to understanding policy implications and the growing societal debate.

Crimes of Hate: Selected Readings is the first comprehensive reader to offer an up-to-date, multidisciplinary examination of hate crimes. Editors Phyllis B. Gerstenfeld and Diana R. Grant 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, Crimes of Hate: Selected Readings 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.
