Two leading experts on hate crime reassess the threat of violence based on difference--whether in sexual orientation, race, gender, ethnicity, or citizenship-- to help us better understand and ultimately prevent such acts from occuring in the future. Hate crimesviolence aimed at individuals because they are members of a particular groupwere once considered the rare illegal actions of a small but vocal assortment of extremists who thrived on hating minorities. No more. In this new book by two of the countrys leading experts on hate crimes, published ten years after their classic book of the same name, these most-recognized authorities and media commentators reinterpret this scourge of our generationhatred based on race, religion, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, and even citizenship. In the aftermath of the worst act of terrorism in this countrys historythe bombing of the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001the authors probe the causes and characteristics of such acts of hatred and, most vitally, their consequences for all of us.
