Summary
"Providing a timely and much-needed investigation of how U.S. law enforcement carries out its public safety and crime fighting mandates, this book is an invaluable resource for students, educators, and concerned citizens. Provides a single-volume, go-to source for insight into police-citizen relations in the United States, from the 17th century through to today. Documents major turning points and historical events influencing the evolution of police power. Provides both supportive and critical perspectives on contemporary trends in law enforcement activities, attitudes, and practices. Enables a fuller comprehension of law enforcement in an era of significant political and social upheaval, much of which is tied to racial, ethnic, or economic factors."
