    Summary: 
    Criminological Perspectives on Race and Crime, Fourth Edition, is the only text to look at the array of mainstream and unconventional explanations for crime as they relate to racial and ethnic populations. Each chapter begins with a historical review of each theoretical perspective and how its original formulation and more recent derivatives account for racial or ethnic differences in offending. Included in each chapter is a review of relevant empirical tests that have investigated the value of the theory for explaining racial/ethnic disparities in offending. The theoretical perspectives include those based on religion, biology, social disorganization/strain, subculture, labeling, conflict, social control, colonial, and feminism. The author considers which perspectives have shown the most promise in the area of race and ethnicity and crime. Ideal for courses in either crime theory or race and crime, this text is used in Criminology and Sociology programs in the UK as well as in the US and Canada. (Publisher)
