In this original and cutting-edge new textbook, Mike Rowe explores the key topics in race and crime. Examining the main issues from a historical and comparative approach, the book fully situates arguments and ideas in a global context with contemporary examples. Encouraging readers to think critically about well-worn debates, Race & Crime covers a diverse range of issues, including:

• Representation and disproportionality
• Victimisation
• Human Rights
• Terrorism
• Popular culture
• Governance

As with all books in the Key Approaches to Criminology series, Race & Crime features extensive learning features to help students to fully engage with topics covered. These include: chapter overviews, study questions, further reading and key terms.

Stylishly written yet accessible, Race & Crime will prove invigorating, vital reading for students in criminology, sociology, race and ethnic studies, and cultural studies.

Chapter One: 'Race', 'Crime' and Society
Chapter Two: Race, crime and the criminological imagination
Chapter Three: Race, crime and popular culture
Chapter Four: Disproportionality in Offending
Chapter Five: Race and Victimisation
Chapter Six: Race, Conflict and Human Rights
Chapter Seven: Disproportionality in the Criminal Justice System
Chapter Eight: Diversity and Representation in the Criminal Justice System
Chapter Nine: Islam, Terrorism and Security
Chapter Ten: Race and Crime: a Critical Engagement

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.
Mike Rowe is Professor of Criminology at Northumbria University.
