Author: The Opposite of Hate
The Opposite of Hate is a stunning debut by a truly gifted writer and popular CNN commentator Sally Kohn. The book is an eye-opening read for both liberals and conservatives. At a moment when we are facing an epidemic of incivility and hate, the writer sets out to discover why we hate and how we can inoculate ourselves. There she talks to leading scientists and researchers, investigating the evolutionary and cultural roots of hate and how simple incivility might lead to more dangerous acts. She travels to Rwanda, the Middle East, and across the United States, introducing us to former terrorists, former white supremacists, and even some of her own reformed Twitter trolls, drawing surprising lessons from some of the most dramatic examples of leaving hate behind. The book will be helpful for the readers who find themselves unable to comprehend the xenophobia and lack of civility in others because it provides a proactive springboard with the author’s passionate appeal for empathy.
