Subtitled "Beard Cutting, Hate Crimes, and the Trial of the Bergholz Barbers," this book explains how a series of violent Amish-on-Amish attacks shattered the peace of a peace-loving people and led to a new interpretation of the federal hate crime law. This book goes behind the scenes to tell the full story of the Bergholz barbers: the attacks, the investigation, the trial, and the aftermath. (208pp. illus. hardcover. Johns Hopkins Univ. Press, 2014.)
