The book challenges students to consider issues of race in the criminal justice system. It retains its international and comparative notes and now includes several new cases and problems.

The authors support a website,, that offers podcasts, syllabi, PowerPoints, and other teaching materials that complement the book. In short, the text combines theory and practice and is compact, student-friendly, flexible, and high-tech.
