Criminological Perspectives on Race and Crime, Paperback / softback Book

Criminological Perspectives on Race and Crime Paperback / softback

Part of the Criminology and Justice Studies series


Ideal for use in either crime theory or race and crime courses, this is the only text to look at the array of explanations for crime as they relate to racial and ethnic populations.

Each chapter begins with a historical review of each theoretical perspective and how its original formulation and more recent derivatives account for racial/ethnic differences.

The theoretical perspectives include those based on religion, biology, social disorganization/strain, subculture, labeling, conflict, social control, colonial, and feminism.

The author considers which perspectives have shown the most promise in the area of race/ethnicity and crime.
