Editorial Reviews

VOYA
This resource extensively covers many current issues surrounding racial profiling, the practice of targeting a person because of race or nationality. A general overview of the topic helps to clarify a subject that many teens do not know by name. The overview includes the history of the topic, cases made for and against it, and areas that are currently affected by racial profiling. Pampel makes an effort to give specific examples, including judicial cases that have involved racial profiling. He presents background on the cases, the decisions rendered, and the impact that the cases had on the overall issue of racial profiling. This book also includes a chronology of relevant events that begins with the internment of Japanese Americans in 1942 and continues to the matter of profiling Arab Americans in airports in 2004. A helpful biographical listing of people who have connections to this issue is accompanied by a short glossary. Pampel also incorporates a guide for students that lists many organizations and agencies. Pampel does an excellent job in covering the various elements of his subject. Unfortunately the density of the text makes this book less accessible to teens, especially those with lower reading levels. The language is high level and often peppered with legal terminology. This book will be most valuable as a research tool for older teens and college students. 2004, Facts on File, 284p.; Glossary. Index. Biblio. Source Notes. Further Reading. Chronology. Appendix., PLB Ages 15 to Adult.
