Carolin Emcke is a prominent journalist, academic and author. Her contribution to public life has been recognized with many awards, including the Otto Brenner Prize for Critical Journalism and the Peace Prize of the German Publishers' Association, Germany's most prestigious literary award.
'With exemplary lucidity, passion and brevity, Carolin Emcke anatomizes a toxic political emotion - and the many insidious, even benign, forms it increasingly assumes in public life. Against Hate is an urgent and necessary book, and all those who seek a way out of our current impasse should read it.' Pankaj Mishra 'At a time when, all over the globe, groups have mobilized around hatred of strangers, foreigners, migrants and refugees, Emcke analyses with subtlety and psychological precision the hearts and minds of those who hate. A must-read book for our times.' Seyla Benhabib, Yale University 'Against Hate is a heartfelt and powerful argument for the defence of a democratic, pluralist society that not only tolerates but also welcomes otherness. There's no mistaking its timeliness.' John Foster, Medium
