Search and Destroy : African-American Males in the Criminal Justice System Hardback
This tightly argued and methodologically sound volume addresses widespread social assumptions associating crime and African-American men.
An exploration into the criminal justice system in America today and its impact on young African-American males, this book challenges the linking of crime and race and the conservative anti-welfare, hard-on-crime agenda.
Jerry Miller has spent a lifetime studying and challenging our criminal justice system.
He has worked to make it more progressive and more just.
He has watched as it turned into a system of segregation and control for many Americans of color.
That is the story told here in devastating detail.
