Summary:
This volume explores the topic of racial profiling or any police-initiated action that relies on the race, ethnicity, or national origin rather than the behavior of an individual.

The authors debate the relevance of racial profiling in contemporary society in the following chapters: Does Racial Profiling Exist?, Should Arab Muslims Be Profiled in the War on Terror?, Is Racial Profiling Justifiable?, and What Are the Consequences of Racial Profiling? The viewpoints are selected from a wide range of highly respected and often hard-to-find sources and publications. Allows the reader to attain the higher-level critical thinking and reading skills that are essential in a culture of diverse and contradictory opinions.
