Book Description

Grounded in Critical Race Theory (CRT); Perpetual Suspects (PDF) studies black and mixed-race men and women’s experiences of policing in the United Kingdom (UK). As a result of an intersectional analysis of class; race; and gender it evaluates the construction of the suspect; enlightening the ways in which racism and race shape police contact. This counter-story to the leading narrative challenges the erasure of race through the contemporary ‘diversity’ agenda. Overall; this ebook proposes that making racism visible can disturb power structures and make change possible. It makes a timely contribution to this considerably under-researched area and will be of interest to educators; college students; and scholars of Criminology; Law; Social Sciences; and Humanities. It will also be of interest to criminal justice communities; practitioners; and activists.

Reviews

Lisa Long brings a new and incisive perspective to the long-running debate over racism and policing in the UK. Her theoretical rigor and faultless research have produced a powerful critical analysis that offers a sound footing for practioner reflection and improved action. Written with fervor and full of insight; this ebook is a highly important contribution to our understanding and earns to be widely read.” — Ian Law; CERS (Centre for Ethnicity and Racism Studies); School of Sociology and Social Policy; University of Leeds; UK

In this timely and significant work; Lisa Long offers an intense critique of the state of UK policing. Perpetual Suspects shows that in spite of much talk about change; anti-Black racism remains endemic to contemporary policing and has insightful implications for Black lives. Drawing upon first-person accounts of Black people in Britain; this ebook represents a call to arms for us to do more to battle against unfair and racist policing.” — Remi Joseph-Salisbury; Senior Lecturer; Carnegie School of Education; Leeds Beckett University; UK

This elegantly; timely written and striking study furthers contemporary debates regarding policing and race. By foregrounding the incidents of the policed and in employing a critical race framework; this study stands apart from much criminological and policing scholarship on this topic where analyses concerning race are exceptional if at all to be found. The author is to be applauded for a text that contains fascinating empirical data; rigorous analysis; and which also ambitiously aims to highlight steps for a future research agenda. It is a must-read for educators; university students; activists; and for anyone truly interested in confronting the supremacy of both accepted academic orthodoxy on policing and the current harmful impacts of police power.” — Waqas Tufail; Senior Lecturer in Criminology; Leeds Beckett University; UK
