Learn the realities of the demographics of violent crime!Race, Ethnicity, Sexual Orientation, Violent Crime: The Realities and the Myths confronts the "political correctness" that for nearly a quarter century has prevented full and frank discussion of the relationship between the variables named in its title. The issues addressed are currently at the forefront of journalistic, political, and public attention via the Governor of one of the nation's most populous states'admission of the reality of "criminal racial profiling" in law enforcement. This work will do much to lift the shroud of secrecy that has surrounded these matters for the last three decades. Race, Ethnicity, Sexual Orientation, Violent Crime: The Realities and the Myths provides a rational basis both for crime prevention and for policies governing intervention in social and cultural development. This will facilitate protection against victimization and inhibit offending based on empirically grounded realities rather than cherished mythologies.Race, Ethnicity, Sexual Orientation, Violent Crime: The Realities and the Myths delivers thoughtful, courageous discussions of these issues and more: blacks and whites as victims and offenders race as a variable in imposing the death penalty patterns of violent behavior and victimization among African-American youth violence against gays and lesbians violent victimization and fear of crime among Canadian aboriginals violence rehabilitation programs for Australian aboriginal offendersRace, Ethnicity, Sexual Orientation, Violent Crime: The Realities and the Myths is a solid overview of how the issue of race relates to criminal behavior. This unique book includes an analysis of data on the annual incidence of aggressive crime, such as homicide, sexual assault, and aggravated assault in relation to race. The book illuminates the contrasting proportional distribution of blacks and whites among victims and offenders as well as their representation in the general U.S. population.
