Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

Clear, concise, and filled with new materials, the book sets a high standard... Scholars in African American, police, and urban history will all be grateful for what is certain to become a fundamental work in their fields." ―The Alabama Review

A balanced, perceptive, and readable study." ―Kirkus Reviews

[This] readable book is bound to explode plenty of myths.... This is an important book that is long overdue." ―Our Texas, The Spirit of African-American Heritage

There is no better time than now for this electrifying, clear, and much needed volume." ―Robert B. Ingram, President, National Conference of Black Mayors

Black Police in America is the most comprehensive and best documented study that I have read on African Americans in law enforcement." ―Nudie Eugene Williams, University of Arkansas

Full of fascinating stories and accounts of racism and heroism, as well as photos and charts, this volume fills a void in the study of the African-American experience." ―South Carolina Historical Magazine

... a fresh and original study and an important contribution to the fields of African American and urban history and criminal justice." ―The Journal of American History

... an accomplished and wide-ranging comparative analysis of the role of race in the development and operation of police departments in America’s nineteenth- and twentieth-century cities." ―The Journal of Southern History

African Americans demanded "colored police for colored people" for over two centuries. Black Police in America traces the history of African Americans in policing, from the appointment of the first "free men of color" as slave patrollers in 19th-century New Orleans to the advent of black police chiefs in urban centers―and explains the impact of black police officers on race relations, law enforcement, and crime.

From the Back Cover:

Using archival sources, newspapers, and personal interviews, Dulaney chronicles the role that black police officers and administrators have played in cities such as New Orleans, Philadelphia, New York, Dallas, and Atlanta. Black Police in America explains the impact of black police officers on race relations, crime, and law enforcement.
