CHOICE Review

Hodge (criminal justice, Univ. of Missouri, Kansas City) explores the controversial subject of gender as a hate crime, relying heavily on the singular legislative example in New Jersey and citing such influences as politics, the media, and special interest groups. Hodge acknowledges the legal challenges that have embroiled this topic, including the US Supreme Court's claim regarding its actual constitutionality. Once acted on by law enforcement, gender hate crime legislation fueled a host of disputes (and deeply contested legal battles) by feminist groups when women were being arrested for assaults against their male partners, female partners, and relatives. While such arrests against women were never the intent of these laws, their occurrence was foreseeable under the (then new) legislation. This text does not properly address the similar fallout on women resulting from such legislation. Also missing is a necessary discussion addressing the obvious fact that a male/female altercation is not absolutely the product of hate any more than an altercation between two males is due to male hate. The citing of cases of rape, mass murder, and the like is academically flawed and misapplied here, conveying a more emotional than a scholarly position and diminishing the book's intellectual quality and academic objectivity. For feminist-based collections only. Summing Up: Optional. Upper-division undergraduates and above. R. M. Seklecki Minot State University
