Summary

Young people who come into contact with police officers on the streets of Britain today have little idea of the significance of the stabbing death of Stephen Lawrence in 1993. Only their parents or grandparents remember the daily news stories for several months following the stabbing of police incompetence and racism. This unique book reminds us of the importance of the Stephen Lawrence case, providing an insider's view of the inquiry into his murder. Presenting never-before-seen information about the Stephen Lawrence inquiry, panel member Richard Stone helps explain why it has not brought sufficient results, and why it has failed to change institutional racism. Using the case as a springboard, he discusses wider contemporary issues-such as policing practices and double-jeopardy rulings-and the lessons we can learn from the many details of the case that have otherwise been buried. Hardhitting and full of insights, this book makes essential reading for academics, students, researchers, and anyone interested in crime, police, and institutional racism.
