The concept of hate crime in itself is not new; so long as minorities have existed, so too have crimes targeting them for their minority status. However, the way in which the law deals with such crimes has undergone numerous changes over the years. For example, hate crime legislation no longer encompasses racial or religious aggravation alone, but has been extended to apply to characteristics such as disability, sexual orientation and transgender identity, with ongoing debate as to whether it should broaden its definition to a greater range of characteristics.
It is vital for any practitioner, student or indeed anyone with an interest in this fast-growing area, to have an understanding of its governing legislation, precedent and key issues.

In short, it is a practical and comprehensive guide to hate crime law at your fingertips, and will be an essential tool for all those involved in prosecuting or defending cases with a hate crime element.
