An examination of the theoretical, empirical, and ethical issues raised by linkages of race and class to crime and responses to crime. Following a discussion of the basic concepts and issues as presented in a set of readings, we will review suggestions and claims of racial and social class bias within and outside of the system of justice and their impact on crime data. The review of factual information will center on reports of the racial and income characteristics of victims of crime, the race and sex characteristics of offenders as suggested by arrests, and the characteristics of those incarcerated or punished in other ways. Students will be evaluated on a set of short papers, classroom participation, and a term paper.
