Race, Immigration, and Social Control, (PDF) discusses the issues surrounding ethnicity, race and immigrant status in U.S. policing, with an exceptional focus on immigrant groups’ perceptions of the police and factors that form their attitudes toward the police. It focuses on the views of three rapidly growing yet understudied ethnic groups – Chinese, Hispanic/Latino, and Arab Americans. Discussion of their experience and perceptions with the police revolves around several central themes, including theoretical frameworks, contemporary perceptions, historical developments, and emerging challenges. This ebook appeals to those interested in or researching policing, race relations, and immigration in society, and to national and foreign government officials who carry law enforcement responsibilities and deal with citizens and immigrants in particular.
