Summary

Race and Crime provides a compelling analysis of the issues of race and crime in both a historical and contemporary context. Each of the eight chapters presents information on race and ethnicity and their impact on the administration of justice. Experiences of racial and ethnic groups (Asians, blacks, Latino(a)s, Native Americans, and whites) in America are examined, focusing primarily on their experiences in the criminal justice system. Unique coverage in this text includes an overview of the history of collecting crime data, historical, contemporary, and nontraditional theoretical perspectives, the history of race and policing, the courts, sentencing, and corrections, and an overview of the historicalcontext of race effects in juvenile justice.
The book also provides in-depth analyses of relevant race and crime issues including hate/bias crimes, racial profiling, sentencing disparities, wrongful convictions, felon disenfranchisement, political prisoners, disproportionate minority confinement, minority female delinquency, juveniles and the death penalty, and delinquency prevention.
