Description: The authors (both: U. of Wisconsin, Milwaukee) examine police-society relations from the perspective of minority police officers as well as members of the communities served. They begin with an analysis of the role of police and police-community relations. A section on police and rebellion covers incidents from the colonial period to the 1992 LA riots. Finally, a section on marginalized police officers discusses the experiences of Native American, African American, and women police officers. Annotation c.
