"Investigating Difference: Human and Cultural Relations in Criminal Justice tackles the tough questions that lie at the intersections of criminal justice and difference. In contrast to typical treatises on diversity, Investigating Difference goes well beyond superficial discussions of race and gender. Reflecting a deep understanding of privilege, this text considers the now familiar categories of difference while reframing the dialogue in terms more innovative, more provocative, more integrative, and ultimately, more productive."--BOOK JACKET.
