Race and Criminal Justice by Hindpal Singh Bhui

Book Description

"The social landscape of 'race' and 'ethnicity' within contemporary Britain has become increasingly diverse and complex. The old, exclusive research emphasis in criminology on the outcomes of social inequalities and policies is now challenged by an appreciation of how race and ethnicity are constructed and other theoretical perspectives. This collection of papers will introduce students to these subjects, and do so usefully by addressing contemporary themes that must be given attention by criminologists." (Professor Simon Holdaway, University of Sheffield). "This collection provides useful and up-to-date information on the response of police, prosecution, prisons and probation services to the challenges of increasing ethnic diversity. It is an excellent source for students and practitioners concerned with reforming policy and improving practice." (Professor David J. Smith, University of Edinburgh & London School of Economics). This text delivers a comprehensive overview of race and ethnicity across the criminal justice system. It unpacks terms such as 'race', 'diversity' and 'multiculturalism' to equip students with a thorough understanding of this complex subject area. Featuring chapters by leading experts, "Race and Criminal Justice" provides a specialist introduction to each area of the criminal justice system, including police, prosecution, prisons and probation. It also features stimulating discussion of contemporary issues, such as criminal justice responses to refugees and asylum seekers, and the experiences of Muslims within the criminal justice system post - 9/11 and 7/7. Each chapter follows a consistent structure, offering: an overview of key theories relating to the study of race, ethnicity and criminal justice; analysis of research, policy and practice; and, chapter summaries and further reading to support understanding.
