In this original and cutting-edge new textbook, Mike Rowe explores the key topics in race and crime. Examining the main issues from a historical and comparative approach, the book fully situates arguments and ideas in a global context with contemporary examples. Encouraging readers to think critically about well-worn debates, Race & Crime covers a diverse range of issues, including:

Representation and Disproportionality Victimisation Human RightsTerrorismPopular CultureGovernance

As with all books in the Key Approaches to Criminology series, Race & Crime features extensive learning features to help students to fully engage with topics covered. These include: chapter overviews, study questions, further reading and key terms.

Stylishly written yet accessible, Race & Crime will prove invigorating, vital reading for students in criminology, sociology, race and ethnic studies, and cultural studies.

The Key Approaches to Criminology series celebrates the removal of traditional barriers between disciplines and, specifically, reflects criminology's interdisciplinary nature and focus. It brings together some of the leading scholars working at the intersections of criminology and related subjects. Each book in the series helps readers to make intellectual connections between criminology and other discourses, and to understand the importance of studying crime and criminal justice within the context of broader debates.

The series is intended to have appeal across the entire range of undergraduate and postgraduate studies and beyond, comprising books which offer introductions to the fields as well as advancing ideas and knowledge in their subject areas.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In this wide-ranging and ambitious book, Michael Rowe has managed the difficult feat of being both scholarly and accessible. He provides a critical and thought-provoking analysis of criminology's long-standing and problematic relationship to questions of race and ethnicity, and, drawing on a range of resources from the local to the global, argues convincingly that criminology should attend more closely to the harms to minority groups that result from the crimes of the powerful
David Smith

In this book, Mike Rowe presents material in relation to the broad area of race and crime in new and refreshing ways. Debates traditionally featured under 'race and crime' are given a contemporary twist, providing students, researchers, practitioners and others with challenging new insights. The material is clearly presented and very engaging
Basia Spalek

Rowe calls for an exploration of the processes of racialization, with a particular focus on how the concepts of race and crime, in various contexts, circumstances and times, have developed, been utilized and applied to make sense of the social world. For Rowe, the concepts of race and crime have real implications as both `are real in their consequences'...This book provides a constructive way forward for the study of race and crime. -- Anita Kalunta-Crumpton
In a short review, I cannot do justice to the treasury of such nuggets supporting subtle arguments in these 300 pages - well charted in every sense. But if you have ever wondered about what happens when business meets academia but never dared to find out yourself, this would be a great place to start. -- Diana Hunter
