Hate crime is a particularly pernicious form of criminal behaviour that has significant impacts upon victims, their families and wider communities. In this substantially revised and updated edition the book examines the nature, extent and harms of hate crime, and the effectiveness of criminal justice responses to it. It covers racist, religiously motivated, homophobic, disablist and transphobic hate crime, as well as other forms of targeted victimisation such as gendered hostility, elder abuse, attacks upon alternative subcultures and violence against sex workers and the homeless. The book also assesses the complexities and controversies surrounding hate crime legislation and policy-making, as well as the continuing challenges associated with the policing of hate.

 

The second edition features expanded discussions of international perspectives and contemporary topics such as online hate and cyberbullying, as well as numerous case studies covering issues such as lone wolf extremists, Islamophobia, asylum seekers and the far right. The book contains a range of links to online material that accompany the extensive lists of further reading in each chapter.

In The Press

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.
