Synopsis

Hate speech can happen anywhere-in Charlottesville, Virginia, where young men in khakis shouted, "Jews will not replace us"; in Myanmar, where the military used Facebook to target the Muslim Rohingya; in Capetown, South Africa, where a pastor called on ISIS to rid South Africa of the homosexual curse." In person or online, people wield language to attack others for their race, national origin, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, or other aspects of identity. This volume in the MIT Press Essential Knowledge series examines hate speech: what it is, and is not; its history; and efforts to address it. Series Overview: ACCESSIBLE, CONCISE, BEAUTIFULLY PRODUCED BOOKS ON TOPICS OF CURRENT INTEREST. Written by leading thinkers, this series delivers expert overviews of subjects that range from the cultural and the historical to the scientific and the technical. Synthesizing specialized subject matter for nonspecialists and engaging critical topics through fundamentals, each of these compact volumes offers readers a point of access to complex ideas.
