  • Rave Review for Rice’s “Race, Ethnicity, and Policing”

    January 23, 2012

    Criminal Justice Professor Stephen Rice's edited volume Race, Ethnicity, and Policing: New and Essential Readings, with co-editor Michael D. White, received a stellar review by Eduardo Moncada of Brown University in the journal Ethnic and Racial Studies 34: 524-525. The book was published by NYU Press.

    In his review, Moncada noted that "This volume is not only a necessary read for anyone seeking to understand the past, present, and future of the study of race, ethnicity, and policing, but also highlights the need for more interdisciplinary and multi-method research on this major issue."

    He also praised the editors: "Stephen K. Rice and Michael D. White succeed in familiarizing the reader with the main theoretical and methodological concerns in seeking to understand when and how race and ethnicity influence police action within diverse communities and the broader implications that these interactions hold for state-society relations."

    Rice received his Ph.D. from the University of Florida and joined the College of Arts and Sciences faculty in 2008. A prolific scholar, he focuses his research on criminological theory, procedural/restorative justice, and the emotional aspects of crime. He also directs the department’s internship program.

    The College of Arts and Sciences, the largest college in Seattle University, offers B.A., B.S., and MA degrees in criminal justice. Seattle University is one of only seven programs in the United States to receive certification from the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences.
