Street Justice by Marilynn S. Johnson

Book Description

This book shows how the history of police brutality affects understandings of police behaviour in minority communities. Street Justice traces police brutality cases in NYC and the anti-brutality movements that sought to eradicate it, from the years after the Civil War through the 1960s. Johnson's main argument is that the idea of police brutality is historically constructed and that the culture of policing can be changed when enough political pressure is brought to bear on the problem.

What's New About the New Immigration? by Marilynn S. Johnson What's New About the New Immigration?, Hardback (December 2014)

Historians commonly point to the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act as the inception of a new chapter in the story of American immigration. This wide-ranging interdisciplinary volume brings together scholars from varied disciplines to consider what is genuinely new about this period.

Violence in the West by Marilynn S. Johnson Violence in the West, Paperback (January 2009)

Popular portrayals have long depicted the American frontier of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries as a 'Wild West' marked by violence. This compelling volume by Marilynn Johnson explores the question of how violent the West truly was and what conditions made violence likely to occur.

Second Gold Rush by Marilynn S. Johnson Second Gold Rush, Paperback (December 1996)

Examines how industries spawned by the USA's entry into World War II prompted a mass migration to America's west coast that would cause lasting social, cultural and political changes. Focusing on the San Francisco Bay area, this study chronicles such issues as labour, housing and racial conflict.
