Violent Crime by Darnell F. Hawkins
Book DescriptionAnalysts have long noted that some societies have much higher rates of criminal violence than others. They have also observed that the risk of being a victim or a perpetrator of violent crime varies considerably from one individual to another. In societies with ethnically and racially diverse populations, some ethnic and racial groups have been reported to have higher rates of violent offending and victimization than other groups. This exceptional collection of original essays explores the extent and causes of racial and ethnic differences in violent crime in the United States and several other contemporary societies, including Canada, New Zealand, and England. The authors critically examine the credibility of the evidence of group differences in rates of violent crime and debate the merits of many of the popular theories that have been put forth to explain them.

In this book, researchers argue that a second-rate and increasingly punitive juvenile justice system is allowed to persist since many believe it is designed for children in other ethnic and socioeconomic groups. Contributors look at the effects on juvenile justice of suburban sprawl.
