Summary, etc.:
Is about the surge of hatred that has swept the globe in the last decade, its myriad causes, and its toll in lives and human misery. This condition is amplified by modern communications technology, especially television and the Internet, and is made more lethal by modern weaponry--including assault rifles and rocket launchers--and unprecedented tactics that strive for mass death and anguish. The authors conclude this important and timely book in a positive manner with a look at the politics of hope and what can be done to halt, and even reverse, this cacophony of hate.
