I have used and continue to use Shaun Gabbidon's Criminological Perspectives on Race and Crime as the core text for the senior seminar, Race and Crime in the United States. Unlike any other book it addresses race from multipleã theoretical perspectives and thus is indispensable in developing an understanding of the intersection of race and crime, and race qua white privilege of those who have created and applied theories of deviance and criminality.
-Sissy Bradford, Sociology, Texas A&M University-San Antonio
Gabbidon discusses the relevant criminological theories on race and ethnicity in a manner that is accessible to the reader, allowing for a succinct, yet powerful understanding of the importance of race and ethnicity. The third edition is a must have for undergraduate and graduate courses on race, ethnicity, and crime.
-Danny Madrid, Criminology & Criminal Justice, University of Nebraska, Omaha
Criminological Perspectives on Race and Crime takes us on an instructive journey through our past and present thinking about race, ethnicity, and crime. While pointing out the potential and the limits of varying criminological traditions, Gabbidon simultaneously confronts the issues that are top of mind for students. He asks readers to consider how racial and ethnic stereotyping influences crime and justice, whether a general theory of crime can be race-blind, how histories of racial conflict play out in crime and crime control, and if theories of crime and justice can be gender-specific and race-specific.
-Katherine Irwin, Sociology, University of Hawaii at Manoa
