Ideal for use in either crime theory or race and crime courses, this is the only text to look at the array of explanations for crime as they relate to racial and ethnic groups. Each chapter begins with a historical review of each theoretical perspective and how its original formulation and more recent derivatives account for racial/ethnic differences. The theoretical perspectives include those based on religion, biology, social disorganization/strain, subculture, labeling, conflict, social control, colonial, and feminism. This new Second Edition includes discussions of "Deadly Symbiosis," critical race theory/criminology, comparative conflict theory, maximization, and abortion, race, and crime. In the closing chapter, the author considers which perspectives have shown the most promise in the area of race/ethnicity and crime.

Review:

"This book fills a critical gap in the criminology literature, and is distinguished by its examination of a broad range of theories, including some seldom considered in the field, its thorough examination of the research on these theories, and its efforts to draw conclusions about the strengths and weaknesses of various approaches. An excellent choice for courses in criminology, crime theory, and race and crime."―Robert Agnew, Emory University

"Gabbidon provides a comprehensive, reader-friendly examination of the panorama of attempts, some sage, some bizarre, to interpret the relationship between criminal activity and race and ethnicity. As a text and work of scholarship, Shaun Gabbidon’s book is outstanding; as a contribution to our informed understanding of a vital social issue it is exemplary."―Gilbert Geis, University of California, Irvine

"Criminological Perspectives on Race and Crime offers a panoramic and probing survey of theories of criminal conduct and ethnoracial division. It invites us to inject this controversial topic, enshrouded in prejudice and moralism, with conceptual clarity and empirical rigor, and to enlarge the debate by reckoning with international perspectives. Students of racial disparities in crime and justice will want to ponder, teach with, and learn from Gabbidon’s book."― Loc Wacquant, University of California, Berkeley
