When Harvard-trained sociologist Peter Moskos left the classroom to become a cop in Baltimore's Eastern District, he was thrust deep into police culture and the ways of the street--the nerve-rattling patrols, the thriving drug corners, and a world of poverty and violence that outsiders never see. In Cop in the Hood, Moskos reveals the truths he learned on the midnight shift. Through Moskos's eyes, we see police academy graduates unprepared for the realities of the street, success measured by number of arrests, and the ultimate failure of the war on drugs. In addition to telling an explosive insider's story of what it is really like to be a police officer, he makes a passionate argument for drug legalization as the only realistic way to end drug violence--and let cops once again protect and serve. In a new afterword, Moskos describes the many benefits of foot patrol--or, as he calls it, "policing green."

After the Civil War, black people in the New Orleans region did not have adequate medical care, causing a health care crisis which lasted for almost two decades. In 1889 an institution emerged in response to this emergency. New Orleans University, a Methodist Episcopal Church school, opened a medical department which would later become Flint Medical College. Flint was born of the missionary fervor of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Although constantly facing the obstacle of chronic financial difficulty, the medical school grew, and in 1901, to honor its benefactor businessman John D. Flint, the university changed the name of the school to Flint Medical College. In spite of positive development, by 1905 advances in medical knowledge and practices threatened the adequacy of Flint's program. By 1906, Flint was struggling academically and needed better clinical facilities. Finally, faced with challenges it was unable to meet, in August 1911, the university announced the closing of Flint Medical College. Divers elements combined to end Flint's existence in 1911, but it was not a failure. This institution provided the foundation for organized health care for black people in the New Orleans area, and signified a triumph of black self-determination underwritten by Christian missionary fervor.
