"The Cambridge Handbook of Policing in the United States provides a comprehensive collection of essays on police and policing, written by leading experts in political theory, sociology, criminology, economics, law, public health, and critical theory. It unveils a range of experiences - from the police chief of a major metropolitan force to ordinary people targeted for policing on the street - and asks important questions about whether and why we need the police, before analyzing the law of policing, police use of force, and police violence, paying particular attention to the issue of discrimination against marginalized and vulnerable communities at the blunt end of police interference. The book also discusses technological innovations and proposals for reform. Written in accessible language, this interdisciplinary work will be a valuable resource for anyone interested in understanding the present and future of policing in the United States"-- Provided by publisher
"The unique feature of the book is its interdisciplinary interaction between the police on the front line and the legal and sociological scholars on the cutting edge of policing theory. Too often, approaches to policing remain mired in different policy-based silos. But policing is a many-headed-hydra, extending into, not only the criminal justice system, but also welfare, housing, health, immigration, local government, and transportation - indeed, almost all areas of life. In this book, the authors reject a narrow, discipline-by-discipline approach to the problem of policing, and instead reach across disciplines to articulate the ways in which the police are used to dominate communities of color and to propose solutions. The resulting discussion and diagnosis of policing incorporates multiple perspectives in order to overcome the partial perspectives of different kinds of experts, policy makers, and police on the streets"-- Provided by publisher
