In an era of circulating clichés and unexamined presuppositions about policing, this iconoclastic book, written clearly and crisply, demands and rewards close attention. Setting their arguments in the current context of austerity and increased demands for democratic policing, Brogden and Ellison survey the amazing, perhaps startling, perks and privileges of top command in the U.K, and place current practices squarely in the swirling world of local, national and global policing. In a compact and forceful manner they identify the key contradictions in modern policing- the claims made and the realities of observed policing. Their narrative emanates a socio-historical awareness of the heritage, not alone from Peel, of ideas about proper policing. Richly documented with data and enlivened by historical detail, the book sets a striking and high standard for future policing scholarship.
Peter K. Manning, Elmer V.H. and Eileen M. Brooks Professor of criminology and criminal justice, Northeastern University, Boston.
This is a major achievement by two pre-eminent scholarly experts on policing. It is the first detailed analysis of the implictions for policing of the post-2007 economic crash and the regime of 'austerity'. But it goes beyond this in providing an account of contemporary policing that is theoretically sophisticated, brimming with policy implications, and grounded in a deep knowledge of the research literature. It should be compulsory reading for anyone interested in policing.
