Praeger Publishers. New York, USA. 1983. first edition - ISBN-0-03-062963-2;. pages 254 pages + bibliograpyhy + index; hardcover, gilt text on cover and spine in illustrated dustjacket, protected; 25cm x 16cm; highlighter used over some text throughout book, not affecting text, near fine condition;. ISBN-0-03-062963-2 - In almost 2000 incidents in the United States during 1980 a police bullet hit a human being. This statistic raises a number of extremely important questions. What are the social factors that determine whether a police officer will use deadly force in an encounter with a citizen? What types of police use of deadly force can be averted? What strategies, if any, exist to control unnecessary police uses of deadly force and to prevent further violence following a controversial police shooting? This book is a fascinating, well-written study that attempts to answer these questions by examining the effect of social forces on the police, psychological characteristics of individual officers, and the problems of management and control. Using numerous examples of actual deadly force encounters culled from their research investigations in Newark, Miami, Birmingham and Oakland, Peter Scharf and Arnold Binder provide a vivid descriptive account of the complex world of police officer as decision maker. The book also includes discussions of the variety of purposes guns serve in police activities, the cultural marriage of the gun with policing, and the variety of armed confrontations faced by police officers.
