"Gabbidon's book provides a sobering account of racism, inequality and injustice, framed by processes of colonialisation, the effects of which are still widely felt in many postcolonial contexts. It will greatly assist teachers and students interested in comparative research and analysis in this area."
"The author does a great job at identifying the nature and scope of the race/crime relationship. The race relations analysis within the selected countries provides a great historical context; particularly for students who are unfamiliar with the role of race and ethnicity in criminal justice processing."
Was assigned a different course.
This book is tremendous! I have taught this course many times, and this is the first semester I am using this book. I decided to include an international section on race and crime in the class. The students loved it. They learned a great deal about race and aboriginal issues arround the world. Both the students and I learned a lot. I will continue using this book each time I teach the race & crime course. Again...great book!
