In this second edition of Hate Crime, Chakraborti and Garland broaden the scope of their analysis to thoughtfully reflect on dramatic changes in the realms of theory, research and policy that have characterized the field in the intervening 6 years since the first edition. They draw attention to our increased awareness of the complexity and ambiguity of hate crime, challenging readers to question many taken for granted assumptions of previous scholarship. This thoroughly researched and accessible text deftly captures the contexts and consequences of hate crime, giving due consideration to both victims and offenders, as well as the relationships between them. What is especially welcome is the weight given to "ways forward." The authors' emphasis on policy innovations within and beyond the UK will undoubtedly shape the scholarly and practical discourses around how we confront hate crime globally.
