Written by two of the most prominent criminologists in the field, Race and Crime, Fourth Edition examines how racial and ethnic groups intersect with the U.S. criminal justice system. Award winning authors Shaun L. Gabbidon and Helen Taylor Greene provide students with the latest data and research on White, Black, Hispanic/Latino, Asian-American, and Native American intersections with the criminal justice system. Rich with several timely topics such as biosocial theory, violent victimizations, police bias, and immigration policing, the Fourth Edition continues to investigate modern-day issues relevant to understanding race/ethnicity and crime in the United States. A thought-provoking discussion of contemporary issues is uniquely balanced with an historical context to offer students a panoramic perspective on race and crime. Accessible and reader friendly, this comprehensive text shows students how race and ethnicity have mattered and continue to matter in the administration of justice.

Review:

"I will be adopting this text for my course. I will also recommend this text for the Multicultural Issues in Criminal Justice course offered in my department. This text is very comprehensive and does a superb job at covering the various topics related to race and crime in America." Author: Matasha L. Harris

"There are not many criminal justice texts specifically designed to address issues of race and crime for an upper level undergraduate course.  Therefore, this text covers a wealth of information in a very clear, concise, and easily accessible manner.  It deconstructs complex issues and presents them in a manner for students to easily grasp and comprehend.  The text does an excellent job of balancing historical and contemporary issues of race and crime.  It also does a great job of covering several aspects of the criminal justice system."

Author: Chenelle A. Jones, Ph.D

"The depth and breadth of coverage is great. I particularly like the subtopics considered in many of the chapters."

Author: Tim Robicheaux

"I really like this book.  The book is well written, is written in a clear and concise way, and covers material that is not covered in other books.  I also like the boxes and tables."

Author: Dana J. Hubbard

"This text seems to have more extensive coverage on specific items such as theory, victimization and policing. Unique strengths of this book: it (1) commences with an overview of race and crime; (2) provides valid and critical information in chapter 2 in order for the audience to critically understand the theoretical perspective described in the book; (4) presents the rest of the chapters in chronologically and progressively organized in terms of "criminal justice"; and (5) provides a study site for both the students and the instructor."

Author: Francisco J. Alatorre

"I have truly loved utilizing this textbook for my courses, and will continue to do so..."

Author: Katy Cathcart

"This is the most thorough book that I have found thus far in regard to Race and Crime.  Additionally, I believe that it provides students with an excellent opportunity to learn and understand the subject matter."

Author: John R. Turner
