This volume is the first major cross-national examination of racial and
ethnic differences in criminal offending, victimization by crime, and
disparities and discrimination in justice systems. These nine essays
provide comrehensive up-to-date summaries of research and experience
concerning those subjects in Australia, Canada, England and Wales,
France, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United
States. Population migration has reached an all time high in Europe and
with it, immigration and crime has become the single most volatile and
topical crime control issue in most of these countries.

The nine essays in this book are written by the leading specialists in
each country. Contributors include Roderic Broadhurst, Julian V. Roberts
and Anthony N. Doob, David J. Smith, Pierre Tournier, Hans-Jörg
Albrecht, Josine Junger-Tas, Peter L. Martens, Martin Killias, Robert J.
Sampson and Janet L. Lauritsen.
