"With a distinguished cast of scholars, this book makes a major contribution to the field in its framing of a very complex social problem." Simon I. Singer, author ofRecriminalizing Delinquency : Violent Juvenile Crime and Juvenile Justice Reform "The most comprehensive treatment to date of the relationship between race, ethnicity, and crime. This collection will be valuable to practitioners and criminological theorists alike because it contains vast amounts of data on the topic, then orders and interprets these data with a strong socio-historical lens, enhanced by a comparative perspective." Troy Duster, author of Backdoor to Eugenics "Shines a new, critical light on race, ethnicity, crime and justice. The text pushes us to consider how these terms are defined, what's missing from our conventional analyses and ultimately why and how race matters in discussions of justice." Katheryn Russell-Brown, author ofThe Color of Crime: Racial Hoaxes, White Fear, Black Protectionism, Police Harassment, and Other Macroaggressions "The editors have assembled a stellar group of scholars and researchers and what one discovers in these chapters is innovative conceptualization, and creative research using mixed methods. The problem of race/ethnicity, crime, and justice looms large in America and this collection is a must read for those seeking a better understanding of the latest research in this critical area of inquiry and the many unanswered questions that future research must address." John H. Laub, co-author ofShared Beginnings, Divergent Lives: Delinquent Boys to Age 70 In this authoritative volume, race and ethnicity are themselves considered as central organizing principles in why, how, where and by whom crimes are committed and enforced. The contributors argue that dimensions of race and ethnicity condition the very laws that make certain behaviors criminal, the perception of crime and those who are criminalized, the determination of who becomes a victim of crime under which circumstances, the responses to laws and crime that make some more likely to be defined as criminal, and the ways that individuals and communities are positioned and empowered to respond to crime.
