This book is a systematic examination of the impact of class, race and gender on crime and criminal justice. After a lucid introduction to these key concepts, the subsequent chapters consistently use them to structure discussions of criminology, victimization and the administration of criminal justice (law making, law enforcement, adjudication, sentencing, and punishment). Contemporary data and policy debates are viewed through the lens of social justice and the goal of further realizing equal justice under law.
