History of police-Black community relations, the social psychology of the police occupation, and the nature of diverse Black attitudes toward police practices. A discussion of the history of police-Black community relations analyzes the origin and use of the Black Codes (laws used to enforce slavery), other psychological containment devices, the patterollers (patrol forces to catch runaway slaves or those away from the plantation without a pass) and Blacks and the Civil War. The political economy and the social psychology of the antebellum South are examined and a discussion of Blacks during and after reconstruction analyzes the emergence of a new order, the era of lawful lawlessness, and the fight for equal rights and treatment. In an examination of contemporary police departments, comments are made on the ambiguity of the police mission, the social psychology of the police occupation, departmental organization, personnel assignment, and deployment, and police attempts to improve relations with Black communities. Methodology, findings and interpretations of a study on Black attitudes toward the police are included. Summary remarks are made on dissension in the Black community, consensus in the Black community, and implications for policy.

From W.E.B. Dubois through Lee Brown, this anthology provides a collection of the key articles in criminology and criminal justice written by black scholars. Available in a single volume for the first time, the articles collected in this book reflect the voices of African-American scholars and display the diversity of perspectives sought after in today's academic community. Crime in the African-American community is examined from social, economic and political perspectives, and the historical context of each article is provided by the editors. Spanning the 20th century, these works present a historical chronology of African-American views on crime and its control with theoretical perspectives that have often been tangential to mainstream scholarship.
