"In the post-9/11 struggle for a sane global vision, this antihatred manifesto could not be more timely."--O: The Oprah Magazine

In this acclaimed volume, Pulitzer-Prize nominated science writer Rush W. Dozier Jr. demystifies our deadliest emotion--hate.

Based on the most recent scientific research in a range of fields, from anthropology to zoology, Why We Hate explains the origins and manifestations of this toxic emotion and offers realistic but hopeful suggestions for defusing it. The strategies offered here can be used in both everyday life to improve relationships with family and friends as well as globally in our efforts to heal the hatreds that fester within and among nations of the world.

Review: Why We Hate

User Review  - Kristen Sera - Goodreads

This book was interesting and informative, however dry at times. Much of the information about hate was given on the basis of biological reasons of hate, however, I wish it focused on much of the social causes as well. Read full review
