Summary

Capturing the minority experience in the world of policing . . . Unique in its presentation of traditional police-related topics from a multicultural perspective, this illuminating work gives voice to the historically marginalized in order to shed a penetrating light on the real world of policing. Police-society relations are discussed from the perspective of minority police officers as well as members of the communities served, providing a dimension often overlooked in police studies. In tapping traditionally neglected resources and viewpoints, the authors hope to achieve long-needed insights into police theory, research, and practice. The authors draw on their personal and professional experiences to give readers a greater appreciation for how lived experiences shape perceptions of the police and their assigned role in society. Their narrative style brings to life the worldviews of African Americans, Native Americans, women, and gays and lesbians in modern American society.
