Learn the realities of the demographics of violent crime! Race, Ethnicity, Sexual Orientation, Violent Crime: The Realities and the Myths confronts the "political correctness" that for nearly a quarter century has prevented full and frank discussion of the relationship between the variables named in its title. The issues addressed are currently at the forefront of journalistic, political, and public attention via the Governor of one of the nation's most populous states'admission of the reality of "criminal racial profiling" in law enforcement. This work will do much to lift the shroud of secrecy that has surrounded these matters for the last three decades. Race, Ethnicity, Sexual Orientation, Violent Crime: The Realities and the Myths provides a rational basis both for crime prevention and for policies governing intervention in social and cultural development. This will facilitate protection against victimization and inhibit offending based on empirically grounded realities rather than cherished mythologies. Race, Ethnicity, Sexual Orientation, Violent Crime: The Realities and the Myths delivers thoughtful, courageous discussions of these issues and more: blacks and whites as victims and offenders race as a variable in imposing the death penalty patterns of violent behavior and victimization among African-American youth violence against gays and lesbians violent victimization and fear of crime among Canadian aboriginals violence rehabilitation programs for Australian aboriginal offenders Race, Ethnicity, Sexual Orientation, Violent Crime: The Realities and the Myths is a solid overview of how the issue of race relates to criminal behavior. This unique book includes an analysis of data on the annual incidence of aggressive crime, such as homicide, sexual assault, and aggravated assault in relation to race. The book illuminates the contrasting proportional distribution of blacks and whites among victims and offenders as well as their representation in the general U.S. population.

Criminal Procedures: Cases, Statutes, and Executive Materials, Sixth Edition is noted for its comprehensive coverage and excellent selection and editing of cases and materials. The book is known for its special focus on a rich selection of materials from multiple institutions, including primary materials from U.S. Supreme Court cases, state high court cases, state and federal statutes, rules of procedure, and police and prosecutorial policies, along with materials from social science studies. The new Sixth Edition retains the casebook’s engaging writing style and division of materials into “teachable chunks.” Updated cases are chosen for their contemporary accuracy and feel to complement essential cases of historical value. Taken together, the principal materials highlight procedural variety, focus on real process topics, provide the political context, and consider the impact of procedures on the various parties involved. The scholarly expertise and experience of the authors is especially reflected in the Criminal Procedure II materials, which includes coverage of prosecutorial charging, plea bargaining, and sentencing. Their frequent use of Problems gives instructors options for applying concepts and doctrines in realistic practice settings. New to the Sixth Edition: Two new authors join the editorial team: Jenia Iontcheva Turner of SMU Dedman School of Law and Kay L. Levine of Emory University School of Law. With her doctoral training in Socio-Legal Studies and her balanced experience as a prosecutor and a defense attorney in state court, Professor Levine sharpens the focus of the book on the real-world operation of courtroom actors in high-volume state systems. With her background in international criminal tribunals and comparative criminal procedure, Professor Turner strengthens the comparisons between court systems in the U.S. and those around the world. As experienced and celebrated classroom teachers, both Professors Turner and Levine bring closer attention to student learning needs in every chapter of the book. More examples and discussion demonstrate the effects of new technologies on criminal procedure. A revamped Chapter 1 offers a deeper exploration of competing models of policing and useful background about policing organizations. Reorganized Chapters 2 and 7 introduce students to the shifting analytical frameworks that the U.S. Supreme Court now employs to evaluate searches in the context of technological devices that store and collect large amounts of data. Chapter 6 relies on current newsworthy debates about police use of force to explore the alternatives and supplements to the exclusionary rule remedy. A revamped Chapter 12 surveys the major changes in the use of money bail and risk assessment algorithms, previewing the prospects for further system reforms. Chapter 13 covers newsworthy recent changes in the charging policies and diversion practices of prosecutors’ offices, especially those in urban areas such as Philadelphia. Chapter 17 expands its coverage of the tensions between fair trials and public trials, including new materials on public access to court files and statistics. A refocused Chapter 19 provides a more detailed and vivid portrait of sentencing hearings and the use of risk assessment instruments. Professors and students will benefit from: Materials that support class discussion, including criminal court actors beyond the Justices of the U.S. Supreme Court: the vision is “street level federalism” Materials that portray for students the range of current practices in criminal justice rather than a rushed historical narrative about doctrinal trends A supporting website that offers exemplar documents from legal practice, recent news with relevance for criminal procedure, and brief video lectures to introduce each major unit Emphasis on high-volume practical issues in criminal procedure instead of intricate but rarely-encountered questions Intuitive organization—tracking the typical sequence of events in criminal investigations and in the criminal courts—that makes it easy to see connections among different areas of the law

21st Century Criminology A Reference Handbook

Criminology has experienced tremendous growth over the last few decades, evident, in part, by the widespread popularity and increased enrollment in criminology and criminal justice departments at the undergraduate and graduate levels across the U.S. and internationally. Evolutionary paradigmatic shift has accompanied this surge in definitional, disciplinary and pragmatic terms. Though long identified as a leading sociological specialty area, criminology has emerged as a stand-alone discipline in its own right, one that continues to grow and is clearly here to stay. Criminology, today, remains inherently theoretical but is also far more applied in focus and thus more connected to the academic and practitioner concerns of criminal justice and related professional service fields. Contemporary criminology is also increasingly interdisciplinary and thus features a broad variety of ideological orientations to and perspectives on the causes, effects and responses to crime. 21st Century Criminology: A Reference Handbook provides straightforward and definitive overviews of 100 key topics comprising traditional criminology and its modern outgrowths. The individual chapters have been designed to serve as a "first-look" reference source for most criminological inquires. Both connected to the sociological origins of criminology (i.e., theory and research methods) and the justice systems' response to crime and related social problems, as well as coverage of major crime types, this two-volume set offers a comprehensive overview of the current state of criminology. From student term papers and masters theses to researchers commencing literature reviews, 21st Century Criminology is a ready source from which to quickly access authoritative knowledge on a range of key issues and topics central to contemporary criminology. This two-volume set in the SAGE 21st Century Reference Series is intended to provide undergraduate majors with an authoritative reference source that will serve their research needs with more detailed information than encyclopedia entries but not so much jargon, detail, or density as a journal article or research handbook chapter. 100 entries or "mini-chapters" highlight the most important topics, issues, questions, and debates any student obtaining a degree in this field ought to have mastered for effectiveness in the 21st century. Curricular-driven, chapters provide students with initial footholds on topics of interest in researching term papers, in preparing for GREs, in consulting to determine directions to take in pursuing a senior thesis, graduate degree, career, etc. Comprehensive in coverage, major sections include The Discipline of Criminology, Correlates of Crime, Theories of Crime & Justice, Measurement & Research, Types of Crime, and Crime & the Justice System. The contributor group is comprised of well-known figures and emerging young scholars who provide authoritative overviews coupled with insightful discussion that will quickly familiarize researchers, students, and general readers alike with fundamental and detailed information for each topic. Uniform chapter structure makes it easy for students to locate key information, with most chapters following a format of Introduction, Theory, Methods, Applications, Comparison, Future Directions, Summary, Bibliography & Suggestions for Further Reading, and Cross References. Availability in print and electronic formats provides students with convenient, easy access wherever they may be.

Violent internal conflicts are the predominant form of warfare in the world today, and there is an urgent need to understand their causes and find ways for their prevention or resolution. The 15 essays collected here present a variety of perspectives, conceptions, arguments, and conclusions regarding ethnicity, power, and conflict in the contemporary world. Scholars from Africa, Europe, Asia, and North America explore conflicts and conflict resolution approaches in regions of the former Soviet Union, the Horn of Africa, India, the Basque region of Spain, the former Yugoslavia, Northern Ireland, and the United States. The cases that are presented here reveal the complexity of conflict and the variety of factors and motives underlying the resurgence of ethnicity and the shifting power relationships of the post-Cold War world, and they demonstrate that the solutions will at times necessarily be complex and various. Readers of this timely study will discover a wide geographic and experiential range and a rich and lively debate among the essays on one of the most urgent dilemmas of the contemporary world.

In this book Hill applies a gender lens to the multiple systems of oppression that have shaped the lives of African American women and men. She challenges the image of a monolithic black population, a legacy of the civil rights movement that she argues is impossible to sustain in the postmodern era. Hill examines the ways in which gender has affected experiences of intimacy, family relationships, child-rearing, and motherhood for contemporary African Americans. Drawing on ethnographic material, interviews, and scholarly research, her work rethinks the cultural and historical definitions of black identity and reconceptualises the various forms of oppression faced by black women.
