What People are Saying About This

W. Marvin Dulaney

“Breaks new ground . . . The author places the issue of race at center stage with other social and political developments in Houston and shows quite well how the changing race relations in Houston were just as important in the development of the HPD as technology, the migration of blacks from the rural areas of Texas to the cities, and the emergence of Houston as a major shipping and aerospace center in the Southwest. . . . should become the model for subsequent books on policing in urban America.”--W. Marvin Dulaney, College of Charleston, and author, Black Police in America
