Conflict Perspectives on Race and Crime

ByShaun L. Gabbidon

This chapter reviews conflict theories that have been used to explain the relationship between race, economics and crime. The work of early theorists such as Willem Bonger and W.E.B. Du Bois open the chapter. Derivative conflict perspectives such as Culture Conflict Theory, Group Conflict Theory, and Minority-Group Threat theory are reviewed. Additional conflict perspectives such as deadly symbiosis, comparative conflict theory, and critical race theory are also reviewed.
