The Mugging of Black America (Paperback)
Product Descriptionby Earl Ofari Hutchinson
Criminology textbooks usually contain sections on the relationship between race and crime. This book focuses on it exclusively. Hutchinson first covers the history of the problem and then suggests solutions that include community policing, better use of the media, empowerment of local leaders, greater access to jobs for young people, and reduced use of prisons. This is a scholarly analysis and is similar in tone and content to the work of some of the best-known liberal criminologists such as Elliott Currie and Richard Quinney. A valuable addition to any criminology or criminal justice collection.
