Public inquiries into the racist murder of Stephen Lawrence in April of 1993 eventually led to the MacPherson Report of 1999 and charges of institutional racism in the British metropolitan police services. This book engages the key issues emerging from the MacPherson Report, discussing the failure of police to adequately recruit from minority ethnic communities, the relationship between racism and broader aspects or police culture, evaluations of subsequent training programs in "community and race relations" or "policing diversity," concerns that black people are over-policed, and the inadequacy of police response to racist violence.
