About the Book

The now-famous videotape of the beating of Rodney King precipitated a national outcry against police violence. Skolnick and Fyfe, two of the nation's top experts on law enforcement, use the incident to introduce a revealing historical analysis of such violence and the extent of its survival in law enforcement today.
About the Author: Jerome Skolnick is Clare Clements Dean's Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkely. He is the author of The Politics of Protest and co-author of The New Blue Line.

James Fyfe is Professor of Criminal Justice at Temple University. He was a member of the New York City Police Department for sixteen years as patrolman, sergeant, and lieutenant, and also taught at the Police Academy.
