Overview

Comprehensive and balanced, THE COLOR OF JUSTICE: RACE, ETHNICITY, AND CRIME IN AMERICA introduces current research and theories of racial and ethnic discrimination in America's criminal justice system.

  • "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 a thorough discussion of community-based and institutional corrections.
  • Valuable learning tools to help students master the material include instructive figures and tables, chapter goals and conclusions, and informative boxed material.
