Unfortunately, the 20th century in America appeared to close much as it had opened, with sprees of violence motivated by bigotry, racial bias, and other forms of hate. Is our modern, post 9/11 society doomed to repeat what we already experienced during the era of slavery, the Civil Rights Movements, and past influxes of immigrants? Hate crimes continue to be a pervasive problem in the United States. The murder of Matthew Shepard, the lynching of James Byrd, the murderous rampage of Benjamin Smith, and anti Muslim violence remind us that incidence of deadly bigotry is not only a recurring chapter in U.S. history, but also a part of our present day world. Exposing hate crimes impacts on the broader realms of crime, punishment, individual communities, and society. The contributing authors and editors pay critical attention to cutting edge topics such as online hate crimes, hate based music, anti Latino hostilities, Islamaphobia, hate crimes in the War on Terror, school based anti hate initiatives, and more. The final volume of Hate Crimes provides valuable info on possible legislative, educational, social policy, or community organizational responses to the varied forms of hate crime.
