Product Description

Review

Petrosino challenges us to engage with some of the fundamental questions associated with hate crimes, and to think more critically about their nature, causation and implications. Written accessibly and authoritatively throughout, this text underlines the importance of seeing hate crime as a human problem which requires interventions beyond simply the immediate or the obvious.

Dr Neil Chakraborti, Director of the Leicester Centre for Hate Studies, University of Leicester, UK

In the last two decades or so hate crime has become a significant global cause for concern. Drawing upon her own vast experience and expertise in the area, Carolyn Petrosino has written a fascinating and accessible book that offers a comprehensive and wide-ranging overview of the complex field of hate crime. She offers insightful analysis of not just the harmful effects of hate, but also of the motivations and profiles of offenders, both from a US and international perspective. I’ve no doubt Understanding Hate Crimes will become a key texts for academics, students and practitioners.

Jon Garland, Reader in Criminology, University of Surrey, UK

Thoughtful, well-written, and broad in scope, this book provides a strong overview of hate crime. Researchers and students in a variety of disciplines will find this text enlightening and accessible. Professor Petrosino brings a fresh perspective to a topic still badly in need of more study.

Phyllis B. Gerstenfeld, J.D., Ph.D., California State University, Stanislaus, USA
