Black Women's Experiences of Criminal Justice was first published in 1997 and has been reprinted several times in response to popular demand. It deals with the multiple hazards of discrimination - on the basis of race, gender and class - faced by black women who come into contact with the criminal justice process of England and Wales. This updated and revised version includes information about developments since that time. The book includes first-hand accounts by black women prisoners concerning their treatment by and impressions of the system. The text has became key reading for practitioners and students alike.
