This is a sweeping new interpretation of the national experience, reconceiving key political events from the Revolution to the New Deal.

Policing the Open Road examines how the rise of the car, that symbol of American personal freedom, inadvertently led to ever more intrusive policing--with disastrous consequences for racial equality in our criminal justice system.
