9780761928133: Hate Crimes: Causes, Controls, and Controversies

Who perpetrates hate crimes and why? How do hate groups recruit members? Why does so much controversy surround hate crime legislation? While hate crimes are becoming a popular area of academic study, many important questions about hate crimes remain unanswered. "Hate Crimes: Causes, Controls, and Controversies" addresses the many facets of hate crimes, providing a comprehensive examination of this complex problem. Author Phyllis B. Gerstenfeld explores the causes of prejudice, the history and operation of hate crime legislation, the activities of organized extremist groups, the international manifestations and solutions to hate crimes, and the consequences of hate crimes upon victims and communities. Considering a broad range of issues from a variety of perspectives, this multidisciplinary text includes the latest legal developments and cutting-edge social research.To inspire and engage students, the author includes: current and familiar topics such as hate on campus; a sampling of state hate crime laws; information for starting an anti-hate campaign; first-person accounts from victims and perpetrators of hate crimes; and, predictions about and recommendations for the future of hate crimes; chapter conclusions, discussion questions, and Internet exercises. Designed to spark discussion in hate crimes courses for undergraduate and graduate students in criminology, criminal justice, and sociology, "Hate Crimes" will also be of interest to instructors teaching courses on victimology, violence, and race, ethnicity, and gender.
