Hate crime has become an increasingly familiar term in recent times as problems of bigotry and prejudice continue to pose complex challenges for societies across the world. Although greater recognition is now afforded to hate crimes and their associated harms, the problem is still widespread and many key questions remain unanswered. Are we doing enough to protect vulnerable members of society? Are we doing enough to address the offending behaviour of hate crime perpetrators? Are there better ways of understanding and responding to hate crime?

This book brings together contributions from leading experts in the field to address these and other contested issues in this fascinating and often controversial subject area. Drawing upon innovative work being undertaken nationally and internationally, the book offers fresh ideas on hate crime scholarship and policy and in so doing enables readers to re-evaluate the concept of hate crime in the light of fresh research, theory and policy.

It provides much-needed ways of taking the `hate debate' forward as well as offering practical suggestions for developing both scholarship and policy in a more progressive manner.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This well-organised and well-written collection of essays is a useful contribution that achieves its purpose of advancing hate crime scholarship and policy.

The collection engages with many issues on hate crime that are underexplored by researchers and policy makers. It also paves the way for new areas of investigation.'
- Jordan Blair Woods, PhD Student, Institute of Criminology, University of Cambridge in The Howard Journal of Criminal Justice, July 2011
