Why We Hateby Jack Levin
Not why they themselves hate, or even why sociologists hate, but why large groups of people hate other large groups of people, is the question Levin and Rabrenovic (both: sociology, Northeastern U.) take up. They examine hate as expressed in widespread violence, fear, and revenge; and explore its roots in human nature, the mass media, culture, politics, and the economy.
