Historically the intersections of class, race/ethnicity, and gender have been absent from criminological discussions. As a result, the true nature of class, race/ethnicity, and gender and their influence on policy remain dismal. Given what you have read this week, provide an analysis of the impact that the intersection of class, race/ethnicity, and gender have on criminological perspectives. Be sure to include references from the Barack chapter, the Reiman Appendix II and the Burgess-Proctor article.
