"This timely and comprehensive volume sheds badly-needed light on the complex interaction between police and communities of color. Few issues rank higher on the nation's justice reform agenda. Get it right, and we enhance police legitimacy and reduce crime; get it wrong, and we create inner city tinderboxes. This formidable compendium of scholarship will help us get it right." -Jeremy Travis, President, John Jay College of Criminal Justice
