History of police-Black community relations, the social psychology of the police occupation, and the nature of diverse Black attitudes toward police practices. A discussion of the history of police-Black community relations analyzes the origin and use of the Black Codes (laws used to enforce slavery), other psychological containment devices, the patterollers (patrol forces to catch runaway slaves or those away from the plantation without a pass) and Blacks and the Civil War. The political economy and the social psychology of the antebellum South are examined and a discussion of Blacks during and after reconstruction analyzes the emergence of a new order, the era of lawful lawlessness, and the fight for equal rights and treatment. In an examination of contemporary police departments, comments are made on the ambiguity of the police mission, the social psychology of the police occupation, departmental organization, personnel assignment, and deployment, and police attempts to improve relations with Black communities. Methodology, findings and interpretations of a study on Black attitudes toward the police are included. Summary remarks are made on dissension in the Black community, consensus in the Black community, and implications for policy.

Fantasy And The Real World In British Children S Literature

This study examines the children’s books of three extraordinary British writers—J.K. Rowling, Diana Wynne Jones, and Terry Pratchett—and investigates their sophisticated use of narrative strategies not only to engage children in reading, but to educate them into becoming mature readers and indeed individuals. The book demonstrates how in quite different ways these writers establish reader expectations by drawing on conventions in existing genres only to subvert those expectations. Their strategies lead young readers to evaluate for themselves both the power of story to shape our understanding of the world and to develop a sense of identity and agency. Rowling, Jones, and Pratchett provide their readers with fantasies that are pleasurable and imaginative, but far from encouraging escape from reality, they convey important lessons about the complexities and challenges of the real world—and how these may be faced and solved. All three writers deploy the tropes and imaginative possibilities of fantasy to disturb, challenge, and enlarge the world of their readers.
