Other Editions of This Title:
Praise For You Can't Stop the Revolution: Community Disorder and Social Ties in Post-Ferguson America…
— Contemporary Sociology
"You Can’t Stop the Revolution breaks out of the well tread genre of books about police violence and Black Lives Matter and moves into a very provocative discussion of the nature of social order for oppressed communities."
— Ethnic and Racial Studies
"Boyles’ account of post-Ferguson provides context with meticulous detail. . . . This book could serve as supplemental material for a graduate-level research methods course or graduate seminar courses focused on race and crime."
— Criminal Justice Review
"One of the book’s many strengths is its engagement with the issue of policing. Boyles offers important insights into the relationship between Blacks and the police that are relevant outside of Ferguson."
