“This is a great tool that provides not only historical perspective but also incorporates additional resources to help expand the student’s ability to understand an issue and implications stemming from it.”
“I would describe this text as effective! It covers the material in a comprehensive manner, and also provides great support through quality data tables. It is reasonably priced and easy for students to utilize and understand. I feel it is of super quality for undergraduate criminal justice courses focused on the topic.”
“The text is very informational, well-researched, and organized. The illustrations and tables are phenomenal and the topic of race and crime is highlighted in detail by the information.”
“This text is a thorough examination of race and its relation to criminal justice decision-making. From the historical roots of slavery to the handling of juvenile criminality, this text touches upon all of the important issues. Besides supplementing the course with topical discussions that are more sociological than criminal justice-oriented, this is the only book you need to effectively and efficiently teach a Race and Crime class.”
“Gabbidon and Greene’s text shows and explains racial disparities in the criminal justice process through the lens of history and shows how history plays a role in contemporary issues still facing our criminal justice system.”
