About the Author

James D. Ward teaches in the School of Public Affairs and Administration at Rutgers University-Newark.


This valuable collection shows how racial disparities in police stops, police shootings, and other law enforcement activities grow from deep institutional patterns in policing and urban governance, challenging public administration scholars and practitioners alike to think more deeply and act with greater determination to address one of the most troubling and important problems of our time. -- Charles Epp, University of Kansas
The power of this important and timely book is the broad perspective provided on the issue of policing and race in America. While effectively documenting the fundamental importance of interactions between law enforcement and minority residents on their psychological, social, and economic conditions, the authors convincingly argue that improving relations requires a multi-dimensional examination of larger questions of individual and institutionalized racism in American culture. -- Tom Barth, University of North Carolina at Charlotte
