Synopsis: Policing today is more professional than it has ever been in U.S. history. Yet we are reminded by well-publicized beatings that brutality continues. The question is why. To understand how and why brutality occurs and how it might be prevented, the author covers the following issues: Chapters include: Is Police Brutality a Serious Problem? What Factors Contribute to Police Brutality? How Does Police Brutality Affect Society? How Can Police Brutality Be Reduced?
"This anthology includes essays that initially appeared in periodicals, newspapers, books, government documents, and public and private organizational publications...A balanced presentation for highly controversial views, the selections differ in style and polish; some are carefully reasoned, and others are emotionally charged. Three major sections explore the dimensions of the problem, its causes, and possible remedies. Pulling no punches, this title covers its subjects well. Useful for research, for reports, and for debates."
-- School Library Journal (November 2001) (School Library Journal 20011101)
"I have almost every series Greenhaven Press has published and love them all..These titles will be a gret resource for current events, history, and speech classes and debate teams. Highly Recommended."
--Library Media Connection (August/September 2004) (Library Media Connection 20040901)
"This wide-ranging entry in the Current Controversies series gives readers information for reports as well as for making personal choices. The writing is more intellectual than impassioned, and supporting evidence usually comes from respected sources that young readers will likely recognize and trust. Rich materials for many curricular disciplines."
