This volume of the series was designed to provide a comprehensive primer on the existing best practices and emerging developments in the study and design research on crime and criminology. The work as a whole includes chapters on the measurement of criminal typologies, the offenders, offending and victimization, criminal justice organizations, and specialized measurement techniques. Each chapter is written by experts in the field and they provide an excellent survey of the literature in the relevant area. More importantly, each chapter provides a description of the various methodological and substantive challenges presented in conducting research on these issues and denotes possible solutions to these dilemmas. An emphasis was placed on research that has been conducted outside of the United States and was designed to give the reader a broader more global understanding of the social context of research. The goal of this volume is to provide a definitive reference for professionals in the field, researchers, and students. This volume in the Handbooks in Criminology and Criminal Justice series identifies the principal topical areas of research in this field and summarizes the various methodological and substantive challenges presented in conducting research on these issues. In each chapter, authors provide a summary of the prominent data collection efforts in the topical area, provide an overview of the current methodological work, discuss the challenges in the measurement of central concepts in the subject area, and identify new horizons emerging in data collection and measurement. We encouraged authors to discuss work conducted in an international context and to incorporate discussion of qualitative methodologies when appropriate.

MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR TIME will delve into what is known as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy* to understand better our imperfect human condition. This will give its readers the tools to rid them of anxiety, guilt, fear, pessimism, procrastination, low self-esteem, anger, even mild depression, lack of self-control, overeating, as well as dealing with pornography and masturbation, and much more. The title and subtitle of our book offer you hope against the mindset that society holds about prison inmates: "Lock Em' up and Throw Away the Key!" "Once a Criminal Always a Criminal!" "Prisoners Cannot Be Reformed!" * Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy. It was originally designed to treat depression but is now used for some mental disorders. It works to solve current problems and change unhelpful thinking and behavior. The absolute objective of MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR TIME is to help any inmate, who is wholeheartedly interested in improving himself or herself before being released (that is, Making the Most of Your time), teaching them to be law-abiding and productive after their release (namely, Beating the Odds of Recidivism). If the reader holding this book right now is not wholeheartedly interested in such a reality, please lay this book on another inmate’s rack (i.e., bed area) who would fully use it. This book will be frank and honest. There will be no watering down the truth. Also, the concepts and principles in this book can help persons who have never gone to prison, to become a new person before they do find themselves in trouble with the law.

"The organization of the reader's guide—especially the groupings of landmark cases, race riots, and criminology theories—is impressive ... Other related titles lack the breadth, detail, and accessibility of this work ... Recommended for all libraries; essential for comprehensive social studies collections." —Library Journal As seen almost daily on local and national news, race historically and presently figures prominently in crime and justice reporting within the United States, in the areas of hate crimes, racial profiling, sentencing disparities, wrongful convictions, felon disenfranchisement, political prisoners, juveniles and the death penalty, and culturally specific delinquency prevention programs. The Encyclopedia of Race and Crime covers issues in both historical and contemporary context, with information on race and ethnicity and their impact on crime and the administration of justice. These two volumes offer a greater appreciation for the similar historical experiences of varied racial and ethnic groups and illustrate how race and ethnicity has mattered and continues to matter in the administration of American criminal justice. Key Features Covers a number of broad thematic areas: basic concepts and theories of criminal justice; the police, courts, and corrections; juvenile justice; public policy; the media; organizations; specific groups and populations; and specific cases and biographies Addresses such topics as gender, hate/bias crimes, immigrant experiences, international and cross-cultural issues, race and gangs, and race and law, Presents experiences of all major racial and ethnic groups in the U.S., including Asians, Blacks, Latinos, Native Americans, and Ethnic Whites, as well as religious minorities, such as Muslims Includes coverage of recent incidents like the alleged rape of a black female North Carolina Central University student by white male members of the Duke University Lacrosse Team;, the Jena 6 incident; the Tulia, Texas drug arrests; the Rodney King beating; the O. J. Simpson trials in the 1990s; and more recent racial profiling incidents Two appendices provide information on locating and interpreting statistical data on race and crime, as well as detailed instructions on how to access statistical data on the web for such specific areas as arrests, drugs, gang membership, hate crimes, homicide trends, juvenile justice, prison populations, racial profiling, the death penalty, and victimization Because the topic of race and crime is of wide interest and relevance, entries in this Encyclopedia are written in an accessible style to appeal to a broad audience, making it a welcome addition to academic and public libraries alike.

Criminological Perspectives on Race and Crime examines an array of perspectives that have been used to contextualize criminal behavior among racial/ethnic minorities. Beginning with an historical review of a single perspective, each chapter takes into account the historical development of that perspective and the way in which race/ethnicity is contextualized by that theory. Because of the international nature of the overrepresentation of racial/ethnic minorities and immigrants in justice systems around the globe, the book also reviews international research. Throughout the chapters, the author considers which perspectives have shown the most promise in contextualizing the overrepresentation of racial/ethnic minorities and immigrants in justice systems around the world.
