Summary

Summary

`It is some relief to come across this collection of papers, edited by McNeely and Pope, which ses out to get the record straight...It is refreshing to see such intelligent and honest scholarship...If there is not something here to cause us to reflect and make comparisons, then we must indeed be prejudiced beyond redemption. This reviewer at least will turn to this collection of papers and the valuable references whenever he wishes to consider the vexed but vital question of race and crime.′ -- International and Comparative Law Quarterly, October 1982

`It is an excelent primer for those students and faculty unfamiliar with the demographics and important theoretical, research and practice issues in the area...Classes in social gerontology, public policy and adiministration, social welfare and social work, sociology, and behavioral sciences in medical and nursing schools, will find the book to be a most worthwhile reading and illuminating adventure.′ -- Association for Gerontology in Higher Education Newsletter
