Non-fiction book review - Racial Profiling

Racial Profiling by Alison Marie Behnke

There are a number of different approaches that authors take to writing nonfiction. Behnke's tends toward the intellectual rather than the emotional, which is particularly noteworthy given the emotionally charged topic. The book is divided neatly into topics and well supported by statistics and individual stories. This isn't a book one would choose for pleasure reading or to inspire action, given the more dry approach and general lack of images. It would be an excellent choice for use in a research project.
