Comprehensive and balanced, THE COLOR OF JUSTICE is the definitive book on current research and theories of racial and ethnic discrimination within America’s Criminal Justice system. The best and the most recent research on patterns of criminal behavior and victimization, police practices, court processing and sentencing, the death penalty, and correctional programs are covered giving students the facts and theoretical foundation they need to make their own informed decisions about discrimination in the system. Uniquely unbiased, THE COLOR OF JUSTICE makes every effort to incorporate discussion of all major race groups found in the United States.
- New! Chapter 1 is significantly revised to provide a better foundation and starting point for race, ethnicity, and social class.
- New! Keeping this book on the cutting edge, this edition includes more recent statistics, current cases, and high-profile topics such as intersectionality, racial profiling, minorities as justice officials/professionals, gangs, hate crime, terrorism, immigration, and human trafficking.
- New! The new edition has greatly expanded coverage of immigration and the controversy over immigration and crime. The discussions sort through today’s political debates to present an objective view based on the best and most recently available data.
- Rather than focus exclusively on one or two specific minority groups, the authors strive to discuss a wide variety of racial minorities - Hispanics, Native Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, and more – to give students a more complete perspective.
- “In the Courts” boxes in most chapters provide an in-depth examination of a recent court case.
- In addition to thorough coverage of racial issues in the courts and law enforcement, the text also includes thorough discussion of community-based and institutional corrections.
- Valuable learning tools to help students master the material: instructive figures and tables, chapter goals and conclusions, and informative boxed material and discussion questions.
