Killing in the Name of Otherness: Racial, Ethnic, and Homophobic Violence

Killing in the Name of Otherness: Racial, Ethnic, and Homophobic Violence (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This book is concerned with violence in a number of English speaking countries of three continents: America, Europe and Australia. Contributions focus on the question of racially motivated violence - covering a wide spectrum from the extreme case of genocide to urban riots and inter-ethnic fighting - and finally to symbolic violence, and on forms of hate crime targeting gay and lesbian people. In connection with these types of violence, also addressed here are the political groups responsible for outbursts of hatred, the use of the internet for propagating hatred, and "institutional racism".
