About this title

Synopsis:

Examines the historical roots of modern American hate crimes, some of the people and groups that carry out such crimes, and what their motivations might be.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 6-9-This title is thoughtful in its presentation of the considerable and lengthy history of hate groups in the U.S. and in its examination of the complex conflict between protecting freedom of speech and current bias-crime laws. Able probes the causes behind the foundation of these groups and touches on their appeal to young people. She alludes to crimes against women and suggests a connection between the decline of the economy and the rise in their activities. Finally, the author points out that the vast majority of wounds inflicted by acts of bias are wounds to the dignity and spirit of the victims and also to the democratic dreams and principles of equality of American society. Illustrated with average-quality, black-and-white photographs and reproductions, this is an extremely readable and accessible research tool. It is important to note, however, that its coverage of a complicated and disturbing problem is cursory rather than comprehensive. The book will invite discussions and deeper explorations of a topic of great concern to YAs and, as a starting point and overview, is a worthwhile addition.
