Danger, Duty, and Disillusion: The Worldview of Los Angeles Police Officers by Joan C. Barker

This book provides a new perspective on police literature, examining how police officers feel about their profession and how they form community. Barkers (anthropology, Santa Monica College) analysis of in-depth interviews revealed that there are five phases of occupational socialization which she labels as: hitting the streets, hitting their stride, hitting the wall, regrouping, and deciding to retire. B&w pictures and the personal narrative of Fred enhance the insider perspective Barker tries to relate. A study guide following the text supplies thoughtful questions with the page number where the answers can be found. No index. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com
