Very comprehensive study of every stage of criminal justice and how issues of race/ethnicity are totally enmeshed in the American criminal justice system... we read this alongside Rich Get Richer and The Poor Get Prison, The for my introductory Criminology class. They were a terrific combination. The authors are convinced of their thesis, yes, but the material is comprehensively considered from all sides. The case studies and introductions to each chapter are fascinating if you're even somewhat interested in the subject matter. I am so glad we read this instead of using a standard criminology textbook!
