Summary This collection draws upon perspectives from nine English-speaking and non-English-speaking countries in four regions of the Americas to add to knowledge of how human variations inform crime and criminal justice issues beyond our domestic setting. Extending beyond the traditional focus on North America in race and criminal justice, this book covers Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico, Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, and the United States. Amidst the unique perspectives of the respective societies, are there areas of convergence and divergence in regards to how human physical differences are theorized and applied to crime and criminal justice situations? Race, Ethnicity, Crime and Criminal Justice in the Americas serves as an extension of Kalunta-Crumpton's earlier edited collection, Race, Crime and Criminal Justice: International Perspectives.
