Twentieth-Century Influences on Twenty-First-Century Policing
Continued Lessons of Police Reform
Jonathon A. Cooper
This newly revised edition includes two new chapters exploring events in policing since the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO in 2014. More than summarizing historical events, Cooper contextualizes the subsequent riots in light of classic sociological theory and political philosophy, and offers a potential and compelling new direction for improving both police use of force and the relationship between police and communities.
