New Book Review: Ken Kolb (@kenhkolb) reviews the updated edition of “Policing Black Bodies: How Black Lives are Surveilled and How to Work for Change” #sssi #sociology #race #policing https://doi.org/10.1002/symb.604 @sociologylens

We have just published Ken Kolb’s review of the Angela J. Hattery and Earl Smith’s edited volume Earl “Policing Black Bodies: How Black Lives are Surveilled and How to Work for Change“. Kolb argues that as “Hattery and Smith demonstrate in painstaking detail, the concept of policing offers a powerful theoretical device to unpack the ways all our institutions maintain systems of inequality. From this updated edition, we learn how policing Black and trans bodies can take both material and ideological forms, how it can include incarceration as well as social ostracism, and how it applies to both perfect victims (innocent and blameless) and those whose cases are not so cut and dry.”
