Product description

Review

""Pulled Over" succeeds in providing convincing evidence--the most exhaustive to date--demonstrating how pernicious racism can be at an institutional level without anyone specifically intending that result and with the intention perhaps running in the opposite direction. This is significant research on a fundamental issue presented in a clear, exhaustive manner, and it takes our knowledge of policing a big step further, offering in the process a clear prescription for reform. The book should be of interest to everyone concerned about the way American institutions perpetuate racism."
--Doris Marie Provine, Arizona State University

"This timely volume uses a multifaceted empirical analysis which focuses on street stop experiences among white and minority respondents to examine a central and continuing issue within contemporary American policing. Combining a careful historical exploration of police policies and practices with the results of surveys and in-person interviews, Epp, Maynard-Moody, and Haider-Markel offer a sophisticated and illuminating examination of the experience of police stops. Their efforts identify an important distinction between traffic and investigatory stops and locate race-based problems with the latter type of experience. Polite and respectful police demeanor, while to some extent palliative, cannot assuage the damaging effects of the widespread and systematic use of this policing technique on the minority community. This is a very good read and a compelling inquiry into the impact of police actions on white and minority motorists."--Tom R. Tyler, Yale Law School

"A thoughtful, penetrating, and timely analysis of the causes, experiences, and effects of discriminatory police stops. . . . "Pulled Over" offers a corrective to a number of our existing accounts of racially inequitable police encounters. While the findings presented are troubling, it is not a fatalistic account. . . . [The book] advances a number of sensible police reforms, including more stringent criteria for justifying stops, investigatory bodies to review stop patterns, and a prohibition on searches unless based on probable cause. An exemplary piece of scholarship."--Forrest Stuart, University of Chicago"Theoretical Criminology" (02/02/2015)

"It is rare to read a new book that makes important contributions to multiple fields and literatures. It is rarer still when the book addresses the interrelation of race, perceived criminality, and policing--historically fraught affiliations that remain so despite being extensively explored within law and social science research. In "Pulled Over, " the authors make these important contributions. . . . "Pulled Over "is sophisticated, comprehensive, and methodologically diverse. . . . I commend it to all scholars interested in meaningfully engaging the myriad and complex ways that police stops affect racial identity and conceptions of citizenship."--Mario Barnes, University of California, Irvine"Law and Society Review" (02/24/2015)

--Doris Marie Provine, Arizona State University"

A searing portrayal of the everyday indignities borne by African Americans in their routine encounters with the police on the nation s highway and streets. The authors expose the willful racial blindsight of police and the courts to the evolution of the investigatory stop from its modest role in fighting crime to a sharp-edged weapon that corrodes the citizenship and belonging of African Americans and Latinos. The harrowing narratives and careful statistical analysis leave little doubt that police stops on the highways are racially tinged with disrespect for citizens while signaling to them and us that minority drivers have little power or prospects for equal treatment before the law. Pulled Over shines light on the institutional norms where there is leverage for reform through respectful and lawful policing. --Jeffrey A. Fagan, Isidor and Seville Sulzbacher Professor of Law, Columbia Law School"

In recent decades, investigatory police stops have become a mainstay of American law enforcement. To my mind, Pulled Over is the definitive account of this development, but it is also far more than that. Epp, Maynard-Moody, and Haider-Markel have produced a masterly study of how state authority and citizenship are organized, racialized, and experienced in the United States today. I recommend the book most of all to those who ve grown tired of stale debates about whether the targeted policing of young black men is racist or rational. In these pages, you will find a richer perspective informed by careful statistical analysis and stories from both sides of the police stop. You will also find prose that is a pleasure to read and compelling reasons to believe that we can and must do better. --Joe Soss, University of Minnesota"
