Taking the position that support for racism and anti-Semitism originates in the tacit approval of mainstream society, Levin (sociology and criminology, Northeastern U.) offers a comparative study of hate and prejudice that focuses primarily on racism in American society and anti-Semitism in Nazi Germany. The societal roots of hate are examined in operative and theoretical terms. The way that tacit approval encourages of active bigots is examined and the societal benefits to dominant groups of racism and bigotry are described. Annotation c.
