Book News Annotation:

Academics, fiction writers, and professionals offer interpretations of police brutality and racism in this collection of essays. They offer personal stories of police hazing of black police officers and the pervasiveness of police brutality in the black community, and examine topics such as FBI surveillance of the Nation of Islam and the school shootings in Littleton, Colorado. Essays are accessible to students and general readers. Lacks a subject index. Nelson is a regular columnist for USA Today and teaches journalism at The City College of New York.
