Editorial Reviews


"Underground Codes is well written and thoroughly researched."

-Black Issue Book Review

"This book should be taken as a challenge to do our jobs: to assess critically the 'many issues involving crime and race that are overlooked, misunderstood and falsely linked.' It succinctly and critically summarizes the extant literature that purports to shed light on the race/crime nexus."-Contemporary Sociology

"In Underground Codes, Katheryn Russell-Brown confirms her position as one of the nation's leading authorities on race and crime. Underground Codes is a must-read for anyone interested in how race and racism affect the criminal justice system."

-Professor Angela J. Davis,American University Washington College of Law

"Russell-Brown challenges the convetional wisdom of criminology."

-Black Issues in Higher Education

"Katheryn Russell-Brown's newest work highlights the unique ways that race, culture, and criminal justice issues operate across communities of color and within them. Her study of these issues raises important questions and draws the critical distinctions between fact and fiction for our understanding and ultimate liberation."

-Paula C. Johnson,Syracuse University College of Law, author of Inner Lives: Voices of African American Women in Prison

This is a superb book. The political commentary was great. This is a must-read for anyone looking to broaden their horizons and more deeply appreciate the nuances of profiling and it's negative effects on our society.
