Overview

The Violence of Hate: Confronting Racism, Anti-Semitism, and Other Forms of Bigotry, 2/E

Jack Levin

ISBN: 0205460879

This text explores two forms of hate and prejudice — racism in contemporary American society and the historical occurrence of anti-Semitism — under a single conceptual framework.

Jack Levin is a well-known scholar, author, and lecturer on the subject of hate crimes. In this book, he shows how support for both racism and anti-Semitism can be conceptualized as occurring among four groups: hatemongers, dabblers, sympathizers, and spectators. Levin argues that hate and prejudice continue at a very dangerous level in our society, and that hate typically emanates not from the ranting and raving of a few people at the margins of society, but from ordinary people in the mainstream.

As with every new edition, Levin updates this text to reflect current research and changes in the world. Examples include: an examination of the treatment of American Muslims in the aftermath of September 11th, 2001 and discussion on the "new anti-Semitism," in which Jews around the world are held responsible for Israeli government policies.
