The Racialisation of British Policing
|Publication Date||March 1996|
Drawing extensively on his own and others' research, Simon Holdaway argues that to understand manifestations of 'race' within and outside the police, we need to analyse processes of racialisation previously ignored by the untheoretical emphases of much criminology. Importantly, he analyses how 'race' is manifested within the organisational and cultural contexts of British policing. Laced with quotations from research, contemporary policy documents and other sources, this is a graphic and compelling account of racialised relations within police work which will appeal to students on a very wide range of social science degrees, from sociology to police studies.
