Editorial Reviews

Anita Kalunta-Crumpton
Rowe calls for an exploration of the processes of racialization, with a particular focus on how the concepts of race and crime, in various contexts, circumstances and times, have developed, been utilized and applied to make sense of the social world. For Rowe, the concepts of race and crime have real implications as both ‘are real in their consequences’...This book provides a constructive way forward for the study of race and crime.
Diana Hunter
In a short review, I cannot do justice to the treasury of such nuggets supporting subtle arguments in these 300 pages - well charted in every sense. But if you have ever wondered about what happens when business meets academia but never dared to find out yourself, this would be a great place to start.
