Book Description

Race; Immigration; and Social Control; (PDF) discusses the issues surrounding ethnicity; race and immigrant status in U.S. policing; with an exceptional focus on immigrant groups’ perceptions of the police and factors that form their attitudes toward the police. It focuses on the views of three rapidly growing yet understudied ethnic groups – Chinese; Hispanic/Latino; and Arab Americans. Discussion of their experience and perceptions with the police revolves around several central themes; including theoretical frameworks; contemporary perceptions; historical developments; and emerging challenges. This ebook appeals to those interested in or researching policing; race relations; and immigration in society; and to national and foreign government officials who carry law enforcement responsibilities and deal with citizens and immigrants in particular.


These authors bring both methodological rigor and clarity of thought to a red hot topic of public interest. The ebook elegantly analyses the theoretical and practical issues and implications for those who would seek to advance police practices that foster confidence and trust among those groups who have come to entertain distrust towards police.” — Bill Hebenton; University of Manchester

Immigration is one of the major stories of the 21st Century – everywhere; people are on the move. This timely ebook considers the contested status of police-immigrant relations in the US. It summaries commonalities within the immigrant experience then dig into the reasons that differentiate how various groups have been received. The interesting results challenge simple assumptions about both policing and new arrivers and point to policies for better serving the needs of all Americans. Very much recommended.” — Wesley G Skogan; Northwestern University
