Reviews

"Policing a Class Society is a significant contribution to the literature on criminal justice history."--Alexander W. Pisciotta, Journal of Criminal Law and Criminology

"Sidney L. Harring's Policing a Class Society from 1983 should be considered a classic. A rare avowedly Marxist history of policing in the United States, it offers something many readers crave." --Legal Form
