In the Name of Hate Understanding Hate Crimes

by Barbara Perry

In the Name of Hate Understanding Hate Crimes Synopsis

In The Name of Hate is the first book to offer a comprehensive theory of hate crimes, arguing for an expansion of the legal definitions that most states in the U.S. hold. Barbara Perry provides an historical understanding of hate crimes and provocatively argues that hate crimes are not an aberration of current society, but rather a by-product of a society still grappling with inequality, difference, fear, and hate.

In the Name of Hate Understanding Hate Crimes Press Reviews

Informative. -Choice [A] must read for scholars and policymakers. -Valerie Jenness, University of California, Irvine In the Name of Hate is an ambitious undertaking which represents a painful reality in the wake of the national tragedy of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks against the United States. While published prior to that date, this work adds a rather unique dimension to the scholarship on power and institutionalized discrimination and has global as well as domestic implications. -Journal of Sociology and Social Welfare
