About the Authors
  • Analysts have long noted that some societies have much higher rates of criminal violence than others. The risk of being a victim or a perpetrator of violent crime varies considerably from one individual to another. Some ethnic and racial groups have been reported to have higher rates of violent offending and victimization than other groups in societies with ethnically and racially diverse populations. This series of essays explores the extent and causes of racial and ethnic differences in violent crime in the U.S. and several other contemporary societies.

    •  Is the most comprehensive assessment to date of racial and ethnic disparity in crime and justice in the US and several other western nations
    •  Offers a multidisciplinary approach
    •  Provides divergent ideological and theoretical perspectives

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Violent Crime: Assessing Race and Ethnic Differences is an extremely interesting collection of articles … This collection constitutes an entertaining treatment of the problem of violent crime in relation to ethnic groups … The review of the research is very rich and will certainly save the researchers with similar interests a great deal of time. Moreover, this collection provides a significant number of cutting-edge, original research studies … will move debating about ethnic/'racial' differences in violent crime forward. This collection will be a standard work for the academic and the researcher of 'race', ethnicity, crime and justice. However, it is to policy makers that I highly recommend this book.' Sociology
