Summary

Written by Shaun L. Gabbidon and Helen Taylor Greene, two of the most prominent criminologists in the field, Race and Crime, 5th Edition takes an incisive look at the intersection of race and ethnicity and the criminal justice system. A thought-provoking discussion of contemporary issues uniquely balances the historical context and modern data and research to offer students a panoramic perspective on race and crime. Accessible and reader friendly, this comprehensive book shows students how race and ethnicity have mattered and continue to matter in all aspects of the administration of justice.
