Beschreibung:

1. Police-minority relations in America; 2. Police misconduct; 3. Racially biased policing; 4. Reforming the police; 5. Conclusion: the continuing racial divide.
Race and Policing in America is about relations between police and citizens, focusing on racial differences. It utilizes both the authors research and other studies to examine Americans' opinions, preferences, and personal experiences regarding the police. It examines the roles played by contact with police, mass media reporting on the police, and neighborhood characteristics in shaping citizens' views of the police. It covers overall satisfaction with police, perceptions of police misconduct, and police racial bias and discrimination, and support for a large number of reforms designed to improve policing.
