Overview

With the increasing integration of Western Europe and the substantial population flows following the dissolution of the iron curtain and the wars in Turkey, former Yugoslavia, and East Africa, migration has reached an all-time high in Europe, and "immigration and crime" has emerged as the foremost crime control issue. Ethnicity, Crime, and Immigration is the first major comparative examination of racial and ethnic differences in criminal offending, victimization by crime, and disparities and discrimination in Western justice systems. Its nine essays, written by the leading specialists in the respective countries, provide the most current and comprehensive summaries of research now available on Australia, Canada, England and Wales, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United States.
