In his investigation, Kressel focuses on the horrifying butchery in Rwanda, the terrifying tactics of rape and torture of women in Bosnia, the systematic murder of Jews and others during the Holocaust. He examines history, psychology, and political science for explanations of what propels a citizen to raise a machete against innocent neighbors, and, in a moving conclusion, suggests practical ways for humankind to eradicate the causes of mass hate. Now included in the preface is a discussion of the terrorist attack of September 11, 2001, on New York and the Pentagon.

Mass hate explores why the brutality of humankind erupted and flowed so expansively in the twentieth century and why terrorist violence now threatens the very core of Western civilization. In his investigation, psychologist Neil J. Kressel focuses on the horrifying tactics of rape and torture in Bosnia, the large-scale butchery in Rwanda, and the systematic murder of millions during the Holocaust. He examines how Muslim extremism has led to violence and fear across the globe. Dr. Kressel probes history, psychology, and political science for explanations of what propels a person to raise a machete against innocent neighbors and, in so doing, illuminates the darkest recesses of human nature. Thoroughly revised and updated, Mass hate now includes a comprehensive discussion of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.
