Understanding Words That Wound

by Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic
£19.99   paperback  Westview Press (2004)

Understanding Words That Wound by Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic Written by leading critical race theorists Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic, this volume succinctly explores a host of issues presented by hate speech, including legal theories for regulating it, the harms it causes, and policy arguments, pro and con, surpressing it. Chapters analyze hate speech on campus, hate speech against whites, the history of hate speech in America, and the careers of particular words as "nigger," "spick," "wop," and "kike." Particular attention is devoted to hate talk on the Internet, talk radio and to the role of white supremacist groups in disseminating it. Understanding Words That Wound accompanies and expands on the prize-winning volume Words That Wound: Critical Race Theory, Assaultive Speech, and the First Amendment, also publihsed by Westview Press.
