Overview

A third edition of this textbook is now available.

Class, Race, Gender, and Crime: The Social Realities of Justice in America is a systematic examination of the impact of class, race and gender on criminological theory and the administration of criminal justice. These topics represent the main sites of inequality, power, and privilege in the U.S., which define society's understanding, consciously or unconsciously, of who is a criminal and how society should deal with them. The text is ordered around short, lucid introductions to the key concepts of class, race/ethnicity, gender and their intersections. Subsequent chapters use these concepts as subheadings to structure topics related to criminology, victimization and each phase of the administration of criminal justice: practices of law making, law enforcement, adjudication, sentencing, and punishment. Significantly, the authors provide a history to contextualize contemporary data and policy debates, which they observe through the lens of social justice. The book concludes with a review of the evolution of justice in America, along with an evaluation of alternative crime reduction policies, intended to further realize the goals and aspirations of 'liberty, justice, and equality for all.'

Editorial Reviews

Criminal Justice Review
Praise for the second edition: The authors do a fine job of making their arguments and supporting them with current research and data. People familiar with the critical criminology perspective will enjoy the work and may take away something they have not thought about. Those not familiar with the critical perspective will most likely learn a great deal and appreciate the different perspective that critical criminology provides.
Katheryn Russell-Brown
It's all here. Barak, Flavin, and Leighton demonstrate how class, race, gender, and crime—four explosive topics we're reluctant to talk about publicly—are interrelated and, more importantly, how these issues affect each and every one of us. For the authors, "class" is not shorthand for the poor but includes the middle class and the upper class; "gender" is not shorthand for women but includes men; "race" is not shorthand for minorities, but includes Whites; and "crime" is not shorthand for street crime but includes the crimes of the rich and powerful.
Jeffrey Reiman
Barak, Flavin and Leighton don't only promise to integrate class, race and gender analyses of criminal justice, they deliver! Class, Race, Gender & Crime starts by giving readers a basic understanding of the perspectives of the concepts as they function in history and in social analysis. Subsequent chapters approach dimensions of criminal justice policy and practice, first in terms of each subject taken separately, and then as the three intersect. Conclusions are well-reasoned, and supported with up-to-date research and statistics. Chapters are introduced with striking examples from history, news stories or popular culture; and text is written in lively and straightforward language: clear enough for beginning students of criminal justice or criminology, meaty enough for advanced undergrads and grad students. All will be challenged to think freshly and critically about criminal justice in America.
Nancy A. Wonders
Class, Race, Gender, and Crime: The Social Realities of Justice in America is highly recommended for those who wish to learn more about the complex ways that race, class and gender condition the experience of justice - and injustice - in the United States. This book exposes the powerful and complex relationship between identity, structured social inequality, law, and the everyday practice of justice. The strengths of the new edition include its extended discussion of victimization, criminal justice practice, and policy, as well as its interrogation of the role of law and media in the social construction of difference. Students in my classes praise the text for its readability, conceptual clarity, rich examples, and contemporary relevance - it's an informative and engaging read!
