The Many Colors of Crime: Inequalities of Race, Ethnicity, and Crime in America

NYU Press, 2006

Edited by: Ruth D. Peterson, John Hagan and  

The Many Colors of Crime

In this authoritative volume, race and ethnicity are themselves considered as central organizing principles in why, how, where and by whom crimes are committed and enforced. The contributors argue that dimensions of race and ethnicity condition the very laws that make certain behaviors criminal, the perception of crime and those who are criminalized, the determination of who becomes a victim of crime under which circumstances, the responses to laws and crime that make some more likely to be defined as criminal, and the ways that individuals and communities are positioned and empowered to respond to crime.
