Hate Crime
Impact, Causes and Responses

Second Edition


March 2015 | 208 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

Hate crime is a particularly pernicious form of criminal behaviour that has significant impacts upon victims, their families and wider communities. In this substantially revised and updated edition the book examines the nature, extent and harms of hate crime, and the effectiveness of criminal justice responses to it. It covers racist, religiously motivated, homophobic, disablist and transphobic hate crime, as well as other forms of targeted victimisation such as gendered hostility, elder abuse, attacks upon alternative subcultures and violence against sex workers and the homeless. The book also assesses the complexities and controversies surrounding hate crime legislation and policy-making, as well as the continuing challenges associated with the policing of hate.

 

The second edition features expanded discussions of international perspectives and contemporary topics such as online hate and cyberbullying, as well as numerous case studies covering issues such as lone wolf extremists, Islamophobia, asylum seekers and the far right. The book contains a range of links to online material that accompany the extensive lists of further reading in each chapter. 

 
Chapter One: Understanding Hate Crime
 
Chapter Two: Racist Hate Crime
 
Chapter Three: Religiously Motivated Hate Crime
 
Chapter Four: Homophobic Hate Crime
 
Chapter Five: Transphobic Hate Crime
 
Chapter Six: Disablist Hate Crime
 
Chapter Seven: Vulnerability, ‘Difference’ and Gendered Violence
 
Chapter Eight: Perpetrators of Hate Crime
 
Chapter Nine: Responding to Hate Crime
 
Chapter Ten: International Perspectives on Hate Crime
 
Chapter Eleven: Conclusions and Future Directions

It's a very interesting and relevant topic but unfortunately it's not possible at this moment in time to fit this into any of our courses. Hopefully we will be able to incorporate this topic in the future. This book will be most interesting for us then.

This is a fantastic insight into the realm of 'hate crime', indicating its origins and developments in socio-political, criminal justice and academic domains over the years. Not only is it accessible for all levels of readership, it is well grounded in research and written by two of the leading scholars in this field making this an engaging and informative text.

This book is refreshing to read, well written and nicely structured. A nuanced book that really encapsulates the broad conception of 'hate crime'.
