Abstract:

"In Diversity, Crime, and Justice in Canada hate-crime specialist Barbara Perry brings together 17 of the country's leading scholars to address issues of inequality as they intersect with crime and social justice. Students will discover how collective identities--not just of race, class, and gender, but of religion, ability, sexuality, age--play a crucial part in determining the nature of an individual's encounter with the criminal justice system. Integrating themes of history and context, power and powerlessness, and social and political action throughout, the text examines the concept of difference, the specific issues that different groups face with respect to the justice system, and the kinds of reform necessary to mitigate inequalities. Thoroughly updated throughout, the second edition includes new pedagogical features that immerse students in the practicalities of criminal and social justice. The "Making a Difference" activity at the end of each chapter encourages students to create social change, and the new "Case Study" boxes explore a range of current and historical cases. The addition of a striking new visual program ensures that the second edition of Diversity, Crime, and Justice in Canada will be an invaluable resource for any course that examines social inequality in relation to the Canadian criminal justice system."--
