About this item

In this three-volume reference for high school and up, international contributors in law, criminology, ethics, psychology, and psychiatry explore legal, psychological, and cultural aspects of hate crimes, presenting cases and perspectives from the US and other countries. Volume 1 gathers material on theoretical, legal, and cultural factors, with chapters on hate crime legislation, hate crimes in transitional democracies, gender and hate crimes, and distinctions between hate crimes, violent extremism, and domestic terrorism. Case studies come from El Salvador, Slovakia, and Turkey. Volume 2 addresses issues related to assessment of victims and offenders, such as sociodemographic profiles of hate crime offenders, assessment of offender risk, data and methods of the US National Crime Victimization Survey, and hate crimes toward gender minorities. Volume 3 details interventions, treatment, and management. There is material on therapy for victims, risk management of clients, specialty court programs for hate crime prosecution, and the paradoxical consequences of US counter-terrorism programs against jihadists.
