Editorial Reviews


“Hate crimes, violence directed against religious, racial, and ethnic groups, also finds women and homosexuals as victims. Each of these has resulted in "social movement" groups organized to fight such violence. The authors identified 32 gay and lesbian organizations and 36 feminist groups that have responded to hate crimes. Data collected from these organizations consists of newsletters, reports, articles in newspapers, pamphlets, conference agendas, and the like. Treating this material as 68 case studies, the authors then compare the organizations with respect to their histories of reacting to violence and describe an evolutionary process of movement formation, agenda development, and action… Graduate, faculty.”

—D. Harper, Choice

“[P]rovide[s] the reader with a better understanding of the social constructions of hate crimes… Its authors describe the process by which affected groups have defined hate crimes as a social problem worthy of attention, and they place the social construction of hate crimes within an appropriate historical and sociological context. Through their extensive study of grassroots antiviolence projects emerging from the civil rights, women’s, and lesbian and gay movements, they document the process by which violence against certain groups becomes visible, gets framed as a problem, and becomes transformed into condemnable criminal conduct.”

—Jeanine C. Cogan and Camille Preston, Signs

“Jenness and Broad relied upon the constructionist framework to analyze the ways in which hate crimes and the victims of bias incidents are recognized, identified, and labeled through the formation and continued development of social movements, collective action frames and claim-making activities… A number of illuminating points make this monograph an important contribution to the study of hate crimes, organizations, and social movements… This monograph is a valuable resource for upper-level undergraduates, graduate students, scholars, and antiviolence activists. Jenness and Broad’s analysis has done a fine job of moving the literature toward a more historical, structural, and theoretical understanding of hate crimes as a system of social constructs stemming from the evolution and nature of organizational fields.”

—Stephanie Shanks-Meile, Social Forces

 “The “hate crime” has emerged only in the past decade as a widely identified social problem. Jenness and Broad use a constructionist framework to explore its emergence and what determines which social groups get recognized as legitimate victims protected by hate crime legislation… The analysis of the Violence Against Women Act—which redefined violence against women from a private, family matter to a public, civil rights issue—is one of the book’s more well-articulated aspects… Another strength is the book’s comparisons between the antiviolence movement spawned by the women’s movement, now a quarter of a century old, and the much younger product of the modern gay liberation movement.”

—Karen Franklin, Gender and Society

"This book provides a helpful account of how the social groups in the US have responded to the social scourge of hate crime. It offers a clear and valuable expla­nation of this complex problem."
