"Insightful . . . Haldipur finds the loss of freedom in public space 'most devastating and most enduring' . . . [His] focus is fresh and the message of aggressive policing's devastating effects on communities is clear."
"A focused, emotionally devastating argument against aggressive policing. . . Although the author offers plenty of smart policy recommendations involving the concept of 'community policing,' the personal stories resonate most deeply. . . A sharp portrait of one of the many seriously troubled areas of the American criminal justice system—and one without clear solutions."
"No Place on the Corner is an incredibly insightful ethnography showing the devastating consequences of the racially targeted policy of stop-and-frisk policing. This is a must-read book for anyone interested in justice and policing."
—Victor Rios, Author of Human Targets: Schools, Police, and the Criminalization of Latino Youth
"No Place on the Corner is an important, insightful and nuanced study of the effects of aggressive policing on young people of color in the Bronx. While many scholars have written about the impacts of mass incarceration on people and communities of color, few have delved into how 'public order' policing tactics, especially high volume stop-and-frisk practices, can shape how these young people and their families cope day to day with the fear of the police. This fear is palpable, heartbreaking, and underscores how important it is for policy makers to understand some of the hidden but profound implications of this type of policing. Haldipur manages to combine a keen ethnographer’s insight along with a real understanding of the sociological and criminological literature on communities and crime and as a result has produced an original and valuable book."

—Barry Glassner, author of The Culture of Fear: Why Americans Are Afraid of the Wrong Things
