Serious research into the problematic and contested relationship between notions of race and crime continues to blossom. Indeed, the work of scholars in this cross-disciplinary field supports numerous international journals, regional organizations, and global conferences. Now, to make some sense of the wide range of approaches, theories, and concepts that have informed thinking in this area, Routledge announces a new title in its acclaimed Critical Concepts in Criminology series. Edited by a leading scholar with an international reputation, Race and Crime is a definitive, four-volume collection of cutting-edge and foundational research.
With a full index, together with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Race and Crime is an essential work of reference. The collection will be particularly useful as a database allowing scattered and often fugitive material to be easily located. It will also be welcomed as a crucial tool permitting rapid access to less familiar-and sometimes overlooked-texts. For scholars, students, and policy-makers, it is an essential one-stop research and pedagogic resource. Contains 4 Hardbacks
