‘Fascinating and moving.’ PRAGYA AGARWAL

Are our brains wired to hate? Is social media to blame for an increase in hateful abuse? With hate on the rise, what can we do to turn the tide? Drawing on twenty years of pioneering research – as well as his own experience as a hate-crime victim – world-renowned criminologist Matthew Williams explores one of the pressing issues of our age.

Surveying human behaviour across the globe and reaching back through time, from our tribal ancestors in prehistory to artificial intelligence in the twenty-first century, The Science of Hate is a groundbreaking and surprising examination of the elusive ‘tipping point’ between prejudice and hate.

‘Fascinating and beautifully written. I heartily recommend it.’
