Racist Murder and Pressure Group Politics: The Macpherson Report and the Police - Norman Dennis, George Erdos & Ahmed Al-Shahi

Civitas: Institute for the Study of Civil Society, 2000, Paperback ..
Condition: Very Good.

From the cover: “On 22 April 1993 black teenager Stephen Lawrence was murdered. His killers were never brought to justice. A committee of inquiry was established under the chairmanship of Sir William Macpherson to investigate ‘the matters arising’ from the death of Stephen Lawrence for both the investigation and the prosecution of racially motivated crimes. The inquiry concerned itself almost exclusively with racist policemen. The Macpherson report, published in February 1999, purported to have found that officers of all ranks in the Lawrence case were guilty of what Macpherson called ‘institutional racism’. It further claimed that ‘institutional racism’ pervaded the Metropolitan Police, other police services and British society as a whole. Racist Murder and Pressure Group Politics offers a devastating critique of Macpherson’s methods and conclusions.”
