'This is a provocative book that illustrates the complexities inherent in attempting to understand the role that race plays in crime and criminal justice in European and non-European countries renowned scholars from 13 countries highlight similarities and differences in definitions of race, the availability of race-based crime statistics, and the race-related issues that animate debate and influence policy. This book should be required reading for anyone interested in comparative crime and criminal justice.'
- Cassia Spohn, School of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Arizona State University, USA
'A comprehensive, historically contextualised and contemporary analysis of the presence - and absence - of the relationship bewteen 'race', 'crime and the administration of criminal justice internationally. It is a wide-ranging collection written accessibly and providing a wealth of empirical information on the populist and political dynamics of racism and its institutionalisation within nation-states.' - Phil Scraton, Institute of Criminology and Criminal Justice, Queen's University Belfast, UK
'Kalunta-Crumpton's collected essays...do an admirable job of shedding new light on an international issue that has bedeviled criminologists for generations and continues to defy easy solutions at both the micro and macro levels. Copious references, both in standard and Internet citation format, generate a wellspring of knowledge for students and policy makers alike.' - CHOICE
