Reviews
"In his distressing and erudite history, Schrader documents how many of the tools and tactics adopted by American police over the past half century were originally deployed to fight communism abroad. His argument, which Badges Without Borders persuasively demonstrates, is that the era of intensified American policing that began in the 1960s cannot be understood outside the context of the Cold War national-security state."-- "Bookforum"
"Badges Without Borders helps us to better understand the nature of police power and the dangerous allure of reform."-- "Punishment & Society"
"This is a meaningful addition to the literature on law, criminology, sociology, political science, and history. . . . Highly recommended."-- "CHOICE"
"Schrader's new history of the carceral state is an important resource for scholars, public policy reformers, and political activists alike."-- "Boston Review"
"Shows how the logic of policing and counterinsurgency, as developed in interlinked ways both and home and abroad, were and remain inseparable from racialized logics that see empowerment of non-whites as inherently subversive of the established order."-- "Small Wars Journal"
"Badges without Borders makes a groundbreaking contribution to the literature on the carceral state."-- "Law & Social Inquiry"
