African-American Classics in Criminology and Criminal Justice by Shaun L. Gabbidon
Book DescriptionThis anthology provides a collection of classic articles in criminology//criminal justice written by black scholars and researchers beginning with W E B Dubois up through Lee Brown, the current mayor of Houston, TX. Articles focus on crime and the black community in social, economic, and political contexts. 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.
