"...compact, scholarly, and highly readable volume...The reader is presented with a diverse and compelling panorama of contexts of hate-political, historical, military, terrorist, and in personal relationships and many others. The basic conceptual perspective of The Nature of Hate is social psychological, but the focus is broad scaled. Stylistically, the book is aimed at a general audience...This book could certainly serve as a textbook for an advanced undergraduate class or graduate seminar, complemented with journal research articles. It is relatively brief...engagingly written...intriguing and insightful..." --Arthur G. Miller, PsycCRITIQUES
