Impact, Causes and Responses



June 2009 | 200 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

This engaging and thought-provoking text provides an accessible introduction to the subject of hate crime. In a world where issues of hatred and prejudice are creating complex challenges for society and for governments, this book provides an articulate and insightful overview of how such issues relate to crime and criminal justice. It offers comprehensive coverage, including topics such as:

  • Racist hate crime
  • Religiously motivated hate crime
  • Homophobic crime
  • Gender and violence
  • Disablist hate crime

The book considers the challenges involved in policing hate crime, as well as exploring the role of the media. Legislative developments are discussed throughout.

Chapter summaries, case studies, a glossary, and advice on further reading all help to equip the reader with a clear understanding of this nuanced and controversial subject. Hate Crime is essential reading for students and academics in criminology and criminal justice.

This is a great book, which will provide a valuable resource for our students on the issue of hate crime. I cannot recommend it as a main text, as it is obvious too focused on this one main area, but it does provide excellent coverage of that area and I would certainly recommend it for those exploring hate crime and associated issues.

Hate crime is not one of my specialist areas therefore, I felt the need to do some extra reading around the topic.

This book provides a great outline of some of the key debates present in this particular area of Criminology.

Brilliant read!
