Taken from criminological, anthropological, and sociological perspectives, this book addresses a broader range of special populations in the criminal justice system. Chapters are devoted to Asian Americans, gays and lesbians, Latinos, Middle-Easterners, Native Americans, and the elderly in addition to the traditional minority groups. Historical development, societal issues, crime and punishment, discrimination, employment, and other serious problems are considered throughout. Using anecdotal discussions, readers look at special populations in various roles throughout the criminal justice system and get a more balanced view of the myriad of issues relating to the concept of marginalized groups.
