The second edition of Race, Ethnicity, Crime, and Justice presents the latest research on studies of race, ethnicity, and justice practices at the juvenile and adult levels. With a focus on intersectionality, the text shows how these extralegal factors interact with others to help understand outcomes such as disparities in excessive use of force by the police and court sentencing, as well as disproportionate minority confinement in corrections. Designed to be brief yet thorough, the text covers the most important issues related to race and ethnicity as they pertain to the law, crime and delinquency, policing, courts, and corrections. Race, Ethnicity, Crime, and Justice is highly readable and classroom friendly while also making a meaningful contribution to the literature on the topic.

The following Teaching Materials are available:

  • Teacher's manual with activity ideas and learning strategies
  • Multiple-choice test banks in Word, .txt, and Blackboard formats. Specify test bank type in your request.

For the last several years, I have taught a Sociology/Criminal Justice course on Race, Ethnicity, Crime and Justice as an online course. Prior to developing the course, I reviewed several books and decided the Robinson edited book by the same name would best suit my needs. I found the research provided, as well as the many charts and tables, while in course development, to be extremely helpful in the course design. Once the course opened and students began to enroll, we all discovered the beauty of the way the book was written, and the flow of information was excellent. The students love this book, find it an 'easy read,' and seem to gain so much knowledge available that they had no idea existed. I find the book makes my instruction easy as well as incites the students to think critically about controversial topics. I have adopted this book for every class over the semesters for the last 4 years and am excited to see the new edition as soon as it is published."

Matthew Robinson's edited volume is particularly timely…Race, Ethnicity, Crime and Justice is suitable for an introductory undergraduate course in criminal justice and race...the inclusion in most chapters of "ideals versus reality" is a good addition."
