Grade 9 Up-Part of a new series, this volume appears to be a slimmer version of the popular "Opposing Viewpoints" series (Greenhaven). The book examines the issue of police reform from various perspectives, lists organizations to contact, features an extensive bibliography, and concludes with a detailed index. Chapters include a history of police reform; reports of the commissions studying police brutality and corruption in Los Angeles and New York City; advocacy for civilian participation; the viewpoint that inner-city crime is a worse problem than police brutality; and the belief that police brutality is not widespread. Each chapter is a reprint or excerpt from works that have been published within the last four years and authored by recognized experts in the field. This title will be useful to students who already have an introductory knowledge of police reform. Even though the commission reports are rather dry reading, Winters does a good job of presenting various points of view in a readable, interesting context. The size and organization of the volume go a long way in presenting a complex topic in a thoroughly comprehensible and nonthreatening format.
