Summary This book occupies an unique place in the literature on criminal victimization. There is no other book which offers a comprehensive approach to understanding the impact of crime of minority victims. It is an important source for gaining general awareness, basic knowledge, and increased skills on two of the most challenging and irrepressible forces in American society: crime and pluralism. This book offers a timely and practical approach to both. Topics include: increasing cultural sensitivity, impact of crime on minorities, racism and hate violence, improving the system, designing victim services, and more.
