“Bravo! A much-needed collection. Hate Crimes as Domestic Terrorism is an essential and timely contribution. Using a cultural and psychological lens, contributors frame hate crimes as domestic terrorism, both in the national and global arenas.

“Hate violence has been an important social issue for many decades, but as this book series reveals, its importance has grown immeasurably in recent years. Aggressive acts against people by virtue of their identification with a particular group tear at the social fabric. The psychological and social-behavioral sciences more generally can make useful contributions to our understanding of hate crimes and their more recent incarnation, terrorism. This series will prove invaluable in laying out the issues, the evidence, and future directions for disciplined inquiry and science-based social policy.”
"Edward Dunbar, a long time, prolific, and noted author in the area of hate crimes, has edited an authoritative and exhaustive three volume resource on the topic of hate crimes as domestic terrorism. Dunbar and his colleagues have covered an impressive range of topics in the area of hate crimes from such diverse theoretical and disciplinary perspectives as social and clinical psychology, sociology and criminology, to name but a few of the backgrounds of the noted authors who have contributed to these volumes. These three volumes now constitute a 'gold standard' for authoritative information and thought provoking concepts in the area of hate crimes. It is most useful to have such a diverse and informative collection of writings easily accessible in this format. The books in this ambitious set are an entirely unique contribution to research and theory on hate crimes, and posit the challenging and engaging premise of how we conceptualize hate crimes and their relationship to acts of domestic terrorism. The volumes will be invaluable resources for researchers in the area, a 'must-have' for any library collection, and could form the basis of an excellent multidisciplinary graduate seminar on the topic of hate crimes."
