Violent Racism

Victimization, Policing and Social Context

Revised Edition

Benjamin Bowling

Clarendon Studies in Criminology

This book documents the abuse, assault, and intimidation suffered by ethnic minorities in Great Britain everyday, with specific reference to a recent East London case study. Dr. Bowling explains and examines the procedure through which violence is routinely targeted at these minorities, as well as the roles that ideas and language of racial exclusion play in this process. The apparent failure of the police to respond to this problem is also studied.
