Schneider (American Univ.) has produced a very insightful and extensively researched text on a socially complex issue. Provided here is a close examination of the bitterly debated occurrence of police power and its contested use as applied to minorities, particularly African Americans. Rich archival data, predominantly from US and French records, strongly supports the thrust of this volatile topic. The author presents disproportionately fatal outcomes of law enforcement contacts with citizens of African heritage. Schneider indirectly touches upon multiple peripheral issues and confounding variables. Consequently, her book lends itself quite well to fueling the discussion regarding individual officer traits and law enforcement agency self-perception and their relationship to community complaints and citizen arrests. In addition, Schneider contributes to creating a solid foundation for an in-depth study of the use of police to enforce the directives of the political power class and its impact on local law enforcers. For any social science-based collection. Summing Up: Highly recommended. All levels/libraries. --Richard Michael Seklecki, Minot State University
