Refine Your Search for a Book or Product

Use the “Quick Search” box in the top-right corner of every page to search our product database for books (and other non-book works like the Digital Loeb Classical Library) by title, author, subject, series, or ISBN. Or complete one or more fields in the form below for a more specific search.

Search Tips
  • Search is case-insensitive; that is, capitalization does not matter.
  • Use quotation marks to find precise wording. For example: “stanley fish”
  • Use “wild card” characters to find extra matches. An asterisk (*) matches any character. An “at” symbol (@) matches a single character. For example:
    Searching for f*sh finds fish, fash, fresh and flesh;
    Searching for f@sh finds fish and fash.
  • Subject categories correspond to the BISAC Subject Headings assigned to each title.

You can also visit Subjects & Series to browse books by subject, series, and publishing partner.

Jacket: The Condemnation of Blackness: Race, Crime, and the Making of Modern Urban America, by Khalil Gibran Muhammad, from Harvard University Press

“Predictive Policing” and Racial Profiling

While technology used in policing has improved, it hasn’t progressed, says Khalil Gibran Muhammad, if racial biases are built into those new technologies. This excerpt from his book, The Condemnation of Blackness: Race, Crime, and the Making of Modern Urban America, shows that for the reform called for by the current protests against systemic racism and racially-biased policing to be fulfilled, the police—especially those at the top—will need to change their pre-programmed views on race and the way they see the Black citizens they are supposed to “serve and protect.”
