Description

Researchers have long noted that rates of reported crime and punishment are higher for some ethnic and racial groups in the U.S. than for others. Comparatively high rates of crime have been reported for white ethnic Americans during the past and some groups of racial minorities today. These observations have prompted much public debate and acrimony, but surprisingly little research. Contributors include Thomas A. Regulus; Joan McCord; M. Craig Brown and Barbara D.

Review quote

"This volume is the most luminous I have read on this topic for many years. There is a boldness here of thought, theory, concepts. There is depth and comprehensiveness. The authors in this collection illuminate the meaning of racism in ways that go beyond sheer advocacy. The scientificity (an audibly crunching but truthful term) of these chapters is abundantly and fortunately clear....I think this collection will become a classic." -- From the Foreword by Marvin E. Wolfgang
