Summary:

"Drawing on new sources, a leading scholar presents a groundbreaking story of policing and “riots” that shatters our understanding of the post–civil rights era, arguing that we cannot understand the civil rights moment without coming to terms with the astonishing violence, and hugely expanded policing regime, that followed it." --Publisher.
