Law, Media, and Culture

The Landscape of Hate


Janis L. Judson and Donna M. Bertazzoni

We are living in an era in which hate has become a national value. Hatred against the other is now an endemic and unforgiving aspect of our culture. Law, Media, and Culture examines how the law defines and reacts to hate, how the media reinforces it, and how hate is manifested in popular culture. This book also takes a fresh look at how the Internet has become a major tool to communicate hate, and how the development of attitudes toward hate are shaped by gender.
