Perhaps no topic is as contentious as the controversy surrounding the police and the death of African Americans during arrest. This volume of The Reference Shelf looks at the issues surrounding the recent wave of protests against police brutality and the challenges that police face in the wake of shifts in public opinion about the quality of the U.S. police system. Issues covered will include the Black Lives Matter movement, the Defund the Police movement, and the oppositional Blue Lives Matter and All Lives Matter movements. This work delves into some of the most well-known incidents inciting protests and will examine the response of the police and the federal government to calls for police reform.
