Black Deaths in Police Custody and Human Rights: The Failure of the Stephen Lawrence Inquiry
An insight into one of the most disturbing and under-reported issues to affect ethnic minorities in the UK. Through an assessment of diversity literature and interviews with police officers, it highlights the limited committment to fulfilling McPherson's recommendations and the value of diversity training to operational policing. Against the backdrop of black deaths in police custody, the book questions the extent to which institutionalised racism has been genuinely challenged - and offers an effective agenda for change.
