Aaron Bekemeyer is a historian of politics, citizenship, labor, and the state in 20th-century U.S. history. His current project, "The Labor of Law and Order: How Police Unions Transformed Policing and Politics in the United States, 1939-1985," analyzes the emergence of rank-and-file police officers as independent political subjects in the second half of the 20th century. It explores officers' experiences of police work as the foundation of workplace and political organizing that not only remade police administration and practice but also ushered in a new American political order rooted in law-and-order politics and tough-on-crime policing.
