Contents: Mrs Lawrence's experience of racism; The Macpherson report's evidence and findings. Part 1 The main issues: Stephen Lawrence's death; The murderers; Racist criminality; Police racism; Remedies; Passion and proportion. Part 2 The methods of inquiry used by Macpherson: The Macpherson 'court'; the abstraction of abject apologies; the Taaffes; trial by pressure group. Part 3 The crowd in Hannibal House: the crowd and Mrs Lawrence; the crowd and Inspector Groves; the crowd and Detective Sergeant Bevan; the crowd and Sir Paul Condon; the gullible scepticism of special interest groups; and those they succeed in influencing. Part 4 Mr and Mrs Lawrence's treatment at the hospital as evidence of police racism: Acting Inspector Little's alleged racism; the night services manager's evidence. Part 5 the initial treatment of Duwayne Brooks as evidence of police racism: How he was treated by the police at the scene of the murder; how he was treated by the police at the hospital; how he was treated at Plumstead police station; how he was treated by the police in connection with the Welling riot. Part 6 The treatment of Mr and Mrs Lawrence in family liaison as evidence of police racism: The behaviour of officers concerned with family liaison; the situation within which the family liaison had to be conducted; the Lawrences's reaction to people other than the police; racism; handling bereavement. Part 7 The failure of many officers to recognise Stephen Lawrence's murder as a purely racially motivated crime as evidence of police racism: free-floating aggression; Macpherson's initial approach- the murder was not 'purely' racist; the switch to 'pure' racism; evidence versus public opinion. Part 8 The lack of police urgency and poor police motivation in some areas of the investigation as evidence of police racism: Macpherson's own incompetence in connection with the Stephen Lawrence investigation; What the Lawrences alleged against the police; The 'evidence' of Professor Holdaway Macpherson. Part 9 The everyday and the sociological use of the word 'Institutional' Part 10 'Institutional' as institutional failure. Part 11 'Institutional' as counter-institutional subculture. Part 12 'Institutional' as that which is unidentifiable from any evidence. Part 13 Macpherson's anthropology. Part 14 The political uses of disruptive and separatist anti-racism. Part 15 Stereotypes and prejudice. Part 16 Conclusion. (Part contents).
Responsibility: Norman Dennis, George Erdos, Ahmed Al-Shahi.
