About this Item

388 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.9in. x 0.9in.Hate crime research has gone through several ebbs and flows over the last twenty years. At times, acts of horrific brutality have brought the issue of hate violence into the public imagination; sometimes resulting in legislative and policing changes. However, these changes in hate crime regulation are not universal, even in Western democratic states. In relation to hate violence, contemporary Australian research has begun to address the inconsistent application of law, public policy and policing practice. However, the issue of hate speech has remained largely uninterrogated. Equally, research has tended to focus on the unique characteristics of specific forms of hate violence, rather than assess the conditions of exclusion shared by disparate groups. This book remedies both of these deficiences by providing a critical analysis of the role of hate speech in hate violence, and offering a comparative investigation of antisemitic and heterosexist violence. Legal and social researchers, and public policy makers will find this work useful in evaluating the role of the speech regulation in achieving the goal of eliminating hate violence. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9783639089356

About this title

Synopsis:

Hate crime research has gone through several ebbs and flows over the last twenty years. At times, acts of horrific brutality have brought the issue of hate violence into the public imagination; sometimes resulting in legislative and policing changes. However, these changes in hate crime regulation are not universal, even in Western democratic states. In relation to hate violence, contemporary Australian research has begun to address the inconsistent application of law, public policy and policing practice. However, the issue of 'hate speech' has remained largely uninterrogated. Equally, research has tended to focus on the unique characteristics of specific forms of hate violence, rather than assess the conditions of exclusion shared by disparate groups. This book remedies both of these deficiences by providing a critical analysis of the role of hate speech in hate violence, and offering a comparative investigation of antisemitic and heterosexist violence. Legal and social researchers, and public policy makers will find this work useful in evaluating the role of the speech regulation in achieving the goal of eliminating hate violence.
