Award Winning Cop in the Hood


I was just informed that Cop in the Hood won an award. How exciting!

I won the 2008 PROSE Award for best book in Sociology and Social Work. PROSE is the Publishers Awards for Professional and Scholarly Excellence.

You know... PROSE... recognizing the best books for 33 years and, uh, er, well no, I actually hadn't heard of them either. But I still happily accept...

No, there's no cash prize so I don't think I can quit my day job. But still, it's an honor nonetheless.
