A synthesis of recent research and theories of racial, ethnic, and gender discrimination in the criminal justice system. The authors attempt to comprehensively cover different facets of the issue, expanding their analysis to include African Americans, Asian Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans; exploring levels of discrimination in differing sections of the system (police, courts, and corrections); comparing geographic areas; including class and gender issues; and looking at the juvenile justice system.
