In the wake of September 11, 2001, proactive engagement with the Arab and Muslim-American community became a new, distinct, and national civil rights priority for federal government enforcement components. This book examines the methods, goals and effectiveness of the federal government’s engagement with Arab and Muslim-American individuals and communities.

Specifically, the book focuses on actions taken by the federal government to address, prevent and eradicate violations of civil rights laws against the Arab and Muslim-American communities, as well as efforts taken to ameliorate, eliminate or reduce religious, national-origin, and ethnic bias. Furthermore, this book provides a brief summary of selected federal criminal civil right statutes.
