Description


Asian/Americans, Education, and Crime: The Model Minority as Victim and Perpetrator analyzes Asian/Americans' interactions with the U.S. criminal justice system as perpetrators and victims of crime. This book contributes to a limited amount of scholarly writing so that researchers, policymakers, and educators can gain a deeper and more nuanced understanding of the relationship between Asian/Americans and the criminal justice system. In reality, Asian/Americans in the United States are both the victims of crime and the perpetrators of crime. However, their characterization as the "model minority" masks the victimization and violence they experience in the twenty-first century.
