"The Employment of African Americans in Law Enforcement, 1803-1865, by Lievin Kambama Mboma, examines pertinent primary source and secondary data on police, justices of the peace, and militia duties entrusted to African Americans in Louisiana and in selected Northern states before and during the Civil War. In addition, Mboma discusses African American's little known criminal justice appointments in the plantation regimes, their military police work, and spying missions"--
