Urgent Times: Policing and Rights in Inner-City Communities (New Democracy Forum) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tracey Meares and Dan Kahan have performed a great public service....[They have] opened up a major debate on a promising idea about how to keep streets safe without throwing out essential legal safeguards. If you live where I live, you know that's a life-and-death issue. --The Reverend Eugene F. Rivers, 3d, from the Foreword

Through a searching examination of the constitutional and moral issues of community policing, Tracey Meares and Dan Kahan challenge us to reconsider our ideas about how to fight urban crime and about the role of rights in a democracy. Activists and legal scholars-including Alan Dershowitz and Jean Bethke Elshtain-offer spirited responses.

"The New Democracy Forum series is a civic treasure....A truly good idea, carried out with intelligence and panache." --Robert Pinsky

The New Democracy Forum is a series of short paperback originals exploring creative solutions to our most urgent national concerns.

Synopsis:

Meares and Kahan raise explosive questions in their discussion of the new movement for community policing. Revisiting a controversial clash between residents of a Chicago housing project and the ACLU, they challenge us to revisit our national conversation about the role of rights in a democracy.

Activists and legal scholars—including Alan Dershowitz and Jean Bethke Elshtain—offer spirited responses.

NEW DEMOCRACY FORUM A series of short paperback originals exploring creative solutions to our most urgent national concerns. The series editors (for Boston Review), Joshua Cohen and Joel Rogers, aim to foster politically engaged, intellectually honest, and morally serious debate about fundamental issues—both on and off the agenda of conventional politics.
