This book investigates the phenomenon of racist victimization in a number of countries, uncovering and analyzing its historical roots, its relation to the legal system in a particular national context, its extent and the response to it. Through the international comparative approach adopted and the broad geographical range of studies presented, including national settings which have so far been largely ignored by the literature on racist victimization, the volume offers a truly international perspective on an important social, political and academic issue. As such, Racist Victimization: International Reflections and Perspectives will constitute essential reading not only for sociologists and socio–legal scholars, but for anyone working in the field of race and ethnicity, crime and justice, criminology, victimology or policing.
