Gr. 6^-9. D'Angelo discusses the increasing prevalence of violence directed against individuals or groups that is based on differences in race, ethnicity, religion, or sexual preference. She explains the reasons young, white males are most likely to perpetrate such crimes (seeking thrills, defending turf, etc.) and offers a detailed account of the Ku Klux Klan. Citing several highly publicized U.S. cases as examples, she examines current judicial thinking on these offenses, which permits great freedom in terms of what people are allowed to think and say but imposes harsh penalties for criminal activities involving bias. Frequent, captioned black-and-white photos help bring these crimes out of abstraction and into reality; unfortunately, the placement of the photos doesn't always correlate with their subjects' mention in the text. Appended with a bibliography and glossary, this will make a useful introduction for report writers and debaters. Kay Weisman
