Summary

Based on data from some of the larger black communities in the U.S., this book shows the impact of both individual and environmental influences on black homicide. While it primarily addresses black-on-black homicide, its purpose is to illustrate the effect of the environment on increasing the likelihood of victimization. Race, Place, and Risk demonstrates how changes in the urban economy during the past twenty-five years have played a major role in elevating the risk of victimization in large urban communities and in altering the structure of victimization as well.

"This book is unique in a number of respects. It is far more comprehensive than most. It focuses upon the physical and social environment in which murder occurs. And it is empirically based rather than just speculative or philosophical in nature." -- Anne T. Sulton, Esq., University of Baltimore

Harold M. Rose is Professor of Geography and Urban Affairs at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. Paula D. McClain is Professor in the School of Public Affairs at Arizona State University.
