Reviews

“Delsol and Michael Shiner is a collection of work that makes an important contribution to the field of policing and ethnicity studies, social justice and crime and society. … this is an excellent book which focuses on the core issues that have been debated around stop and search for many years and uses evidence to construct those arguments.” (Imran Awan, Ethnic and Racial Studies, 2016)
