What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

A deft combination of political and social history, Policing Los Angeles adds rich depth to the emerging histories of the expanding carceral state in the second half of the twentieth century. With the LAPD as subject, this book is at once a local and a national story of urgent significance.—Dan Berger, University of Washington Bothell



Policing Los Angeles vividly captures—better than any other book on the market—both the rise of modern police power and the emergence of a social movement strong enough to challenge it.—Christopher Agee, University of Colorado Denver



A richly researched study, this book should be read by anyone hoping to understand the intensity of policing in Los Angeles since the 1965 Watts Rebellion. Using new archival finds, it is a page-turning chronicle of race, capitalism, and state violence in the heart of the city.—Kelly Lytle Hernandez, author of City of Inmates: Conquest, Rebellion, and the Rise of Human Caging in Los Angeles
