In some parts of the world, race is a key social variable in criminological debates on crime and criminal justice practice. Yet, little has been studied regarding the issues of race and crime internationally. This collection fills that gap, drawing upon perspectives from 13 countries across 4 continents to provide a comparative assessment on the influence of human variations on crime discourses, offending, experiences of criminal victimization, and criminal justice responses in differing societies.

Covering Europe, Australia and New Zealand, South Africa, Brazil, Canada, and the United States, and drawing on an international line-up of scholars, this book examines the similarities and differences of race, crime and criminal justice in international perspective.

ANITA KALUNTA-CRUMPTON is Associate Professor of Administration of Justice, Texas Southern University, USA.
