Abstract:

"This text explores two forms of hate and prejudice - racism in contemporary American society and the historical occurrence of anti-Semitism - under a single conceptual framework. Jack Levin, the Brudnick Professor of Sociology and Criminology at Northeastern University, is a well-known scholar, author, and lecturer on the subject of hate crimes. Jim Nolan, new to this edition, is an Associate Professor at West Virginia University, and a former FBI official, specializing in hate crimes and prejudice. In this book Levin and Nolan show how support for both racism and anti-Semitism can be conceptualized as occurring among four groups: hatemongers, dabblers, sympathizers, and spectators. The authors argue that hate and prejudice continue at a very dangerous level in our society, and that hate typically emanates not from the ranting and raving of a few people at the margins of society, but from ordinary people in the mainstream."--Publisher's website.
