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. Exploring a range of cutting-edge topics, this is an invaluable resource for any course that examines social inequality in relation to the Canadian criminal justice system.
