Summary "In Hatred, Dr. Willard Gaylin takes us into the minds of those who hate. First, he describes how raw personal passions are transformed into individual acts of violence. Then he dissects the mechanisms by which cynical political and religious leaders manipulate frustrated and deprived subject populations, creating cultures of hatred and acts of mass terror." "Hatred is the culminating masterwork in Willard Gaylin's life-long study of human emotions. Writing for the educated lay audience, in the eloquent, but everyday language of his bestsellers Feelings and Rediscovering Love, he takes us to the very roots of hatred. Hatred is a survival manual for our times."--Jacket.
