Students will discover how collective identities - not just of race, class, andgender, but of religion, ability, sexuality, age - play a crucial part in determining the nature of an individual's encounter with the criminal justice system.

Thoroughly updated throughout, the second edition includes new pedagogical features that immerse students in the practicalities of criminal and social justice.

The addition of a striking new visual program ensures that the second edition of Diversity, Crime, and Justice in Canada will be an invaluable resource for any course that examines social inequality in relation to the Canadian criminal justicesystem.
