Violent acts, images and words are becoming commonplace in our culture, capable of both commanding attention and engendering disgust. This thought-provoking book explores the voice of rage - in the media, popular culture, political rhetoric and in the more general public sphere. Adopting both ethnographic and theoretical perspectives, the contributors address the ways in which hate is rationalized, invoked, expressed and institutionalized, illustrating the debate with current social issues - including abortion and gay rights - which have incited hatred and polarized positions.
