Sociology of Crime, Law and Deviance
This new volume of Sociology of Crime, Law and Deviance addresses issues of race and ethnicity within the law and law-related phenomena. Even in today’s so-called multicultural, post-racial world racial and ethnic concerns prevail in many aspects of modern law. Contributors to this volume examine racial and ethnic disparities in sentencing and punishment; the continued problematic nature of the African American experience within the US system; the criminalization of immigrants; racial inequities in the administration of drug laws; and the racial disparities that affect juvenile justice. This volume will be of interest to students and researchers in law, socio-legal studies, criminology, criminal justice, sociology and public policy.
Mathieu Deflem is Professor of Sociology at University of South Carolina, USA.
Offering a broad and diverse overview and discussion of a variety of issues of race and ethnicity in multiple areas of law, sociologists cover law and black lives, disparities in sentencing and punishment, and systems and mechanisms of inequality. Among their topics are apartheid justice: gang injunctions and the new black codes, 40 acres and a lawsuit: legal claims for reparations, hooked on punishment: symbolic violence and the drug war inside US prisons, Latinos and the crimmigration system, and drugs and racial constructions.
