Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A decade after its first publication, Class, Race, Gender, and Crime remains the only non-edited book to systematically address the impact of class, race, and gender on criminological theory and all phases of the administration of criminal justice, including its workers. These topics represent the main sites of inequality, power and privilege in the U.S., which consciously or unconsciously shape people's understandings of who is a criminal and how society should deal with them. The third edition has been thoroughly updated and revised. Maintaining the accessible, high-interest narrative from previous editions, it incorporates current data, recent theoretical developments, and new examples ranging from Bernie Madoff and the recent financial crisis to the increasing impact of globalization, in addition to classic examples. This edition also features a revised structure to better tailor the book for use in the classroom. Part I now provides an introduction to criminology and criminal justice. Part II introduces foundational information on the key concepts of class and economic privilege, race/ethnicity and white privilege, gender and male privilege, and the intersections of these privileges. And Part III examines victimization, criminal law, criminal prosecution, and punishment, looking at each through the lenses of class, race, and gender.

Synopsis:

This book is a systematic examination of the impact of class, race and gender on crime and criminal justice. After a lucid introduction to these key concepts, the subsequent chapters consistently use them to structure discussions of criminology, victimization and the administration of criminal justice (law making, law enforcement, adjudication, sentencing, and punishment). Contemporary data and policy debates are viewed through the lens of social justice and the goal of further realizing equal justice under law.
