"Gabbidon′s book provides a sobering account of racism, inequality and injustice, framed by processes of colonialisation, the effects of which are still widely felt in many postcolonial contexts. It will greatly assist teachers and students interested in comparative research and analysis in this area."  —Dr. Coretta Phillips, London School of Economics and Political Science

The race relations analyisis within the selectedcountries provide a great historical context; particularly for students who areunfamiliar with the role of race and ethnicity in criminal justice processing." —Dr. Patricia Warren, Florida State University
