An unbiased examination of profiling in the criminal justice system―one of the most hotly contested public policy issues―on the streets, in the courts, and in the jails and prisons of America.


• Presents essays from scholars in the field on both sides of the debate to provide fair and objective information that allow readers to consider the interests of equality and fairness on one side versus public safety and crime fighting on the other

• Examines profiling along a wide range of variables―race, religion, gender, and sexual orientation―rather than addressing only racial profiling

• Covers more recent events in profiling such as Arizona SB 1070, the "Stop and Frisk" policy in New York City, and the TSA's profiling of Muslims as well as older cases such as Whren vs. United States

• Provides summaries and analyses of key court cases relating to the permissibility and impermissibility of profiling
