Race, Ethnicity, Crime, and Justice examines key facts related to the relationship between race and ethnicity and criminal justice practices at the juvenile and adult levels. 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 intended to provide an in-depth account of what is known about race and ethnicity and how these factors impact justice processing in the United States. The book is highly readable and classroom friendly while also making a meaningful contribution to the literature on the topic.

"I really do love this textbook and so do the students. I have looked at a couple other similar books and this one is, by far, the best at covering the topic."
Dianne Berger-Hill, Old Dominion University
"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."
— Roger Baburam, Corrections Today Vol. 79, No. 2
