Beschreibung:

This volume synthesizes empirical evidence, documentary accounts and examples in order to give a minority perspective on the race and crime debate. It explores the options open in seeking to combat discrimination on racial grounds within the criminal-justice system since the Lawrence inquiry.
This book synthesises a great deal of empirical research evidence, documentary accounts and illustrative examples in order to give a minority perspective on the race and crime debate. The book looks systematically at the influence of race in determining the prison population, in influencing decisions by the courts, in the function and behaviour of the police, in the extent and nature of crime committed (both by and against ethnic minorities). The book ends by discussing policy issues, and explores the options open in seeking to combat discrimination on racial grounds within the criminal justice system following the findings of the Lawrence Inquiry.
