Criminological Perspectives on Race and CrimePaperback - 2007
Criminological Perspectives on Race and Crimeexamines an array of perspectives that have been used to contextualize criminal behavior among racial/ethnic minorities. Beginning with an historical review of a single perspective, each chapter takes into account the historical development of that perspective and the way in which race/ethnicity is contextualized by that theory. Because of the international nature of the overrepresentation of racial/ethnic minorities and immigrants in justice systems around the globe, the book also reviews international research. Throughout the chapters, the author considers which perspectives have shown the most promise in contextualizing the overrepresentation of racial/ethnic minorities and immigrants in justice systems around the world.
