Never before collected in a single volume, this book offers a chronology of late 19th and 20th century perspectives from African-American scholars who, until recently, have not had a major voice in the development of criminological theory and social policy.

Provides students with the latest data and coverage of Black, Hispanic, Asian-American and Native American intersections with the criminal justice system.

Theory of African American Offending by Shaun L. Gabbidon Theory of African American Offending, Hardback (April 2011)

This text argues that a theory of crime specific to the African American experience is justified by qualitative and quantitative data, not just because of the disproportionately higher percentage of African Americans who are offenders, but also because of the higher percentage of African Americans who are non-offenders.
