Summary
    The anthology A Critical Analysis of Race and the Administration of Justice offers historical and contemporary perspectives on critical issues in the administration of justice and places these issues within a variety of theoretical and sociological contexts. The book focuses on each stage of the criminal justice system—police, courts, and corrections—and examines the way justice is administered differently to certain groups within the overall population.

    A Critical Analysis of Race and the Administration of Justice begins with a piece written in 1941 that explores the ways in which societal responses to crime were influenced by abuses of police powers and differential treatment of African-Americans in the court system. As the reading selections progress through the next seventy years and more, students will learn about contemporary race and justice topics such as public opinion, sentencing and youth incarceration.

    Designed to encourage critical thinking and stimulate dialogue, A Critical Analysis of Race and the Administration of Justice, is ideal for introductory criminal justice classes, and those that deal with issues of race, gender, and crime.


    Dr. Jason Williams, who holds a Ph.D. in the administration of justice from Texas Southern University, is an assistant professor of justice studies at Montclair State University.
    Chenelle A. Jones, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of criminology and criminal justice at Ohio Dominican University. In addition to teaching, Dr. Jones serves as the national Director of Research for the Teen and Police Service (TAPS) Academy, a national program designed to reduce social distance between "at-risk" teens and the police. Areas of interests include race and crime, policing, and juvenile justice.
