Behind the News: Race and Crime

Author: Philip Steele
Publisher: Wayland (Publishers) Ltd
Category: Citizenship & Social Education, Multiculturalism
Book Format: Paperback

Go behind the headlines to explore the wider background of news stories that are making a major impact across the world. In Race and Crime, we ask why headlines often link these issues and question some assumptions. Are some crimes carried out by one ethnic or racial grouping more than by others? What parts do policing, prisons, the immigration system and the media play? We examine abuse and hate crimes linked to race, such as slavery or genocide. Who are the perpetrators and who are the victims?
