Abstract

This book provides a collection of essays dedicated to the issues of hate crimes in Australia. The contributors illustrate popular contemporary perceptions of minorities in an imagined homogenous Australia. This work evaluates the history of violence against minorities, and the inadequacies of the criminal justice system in dealing with hate crimes, in an effort to achieve possible remedies and change. Topics include: defining the issues of hate crime; immigration, nationalism and anti-Asian racism; sexual identity and victimhood in gay-hate murder trials; vilification of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Keywords: hate crimes, Australia, violence, minorities, criminal justice system
