"Timely and thought provoking...."--American Journal of Sociology "Fine scholarship, deep insights and thought-provoking suggestions for police reform."--Joseph D. McNamara, Hoover Institute, Stanford University "Timely and thought provoking...."--American Journal of Sociology "A tour de force of research on police organization and an analysis of new data on police activities, workloads, and budgets....One of the most rewarding aspects of the book is its comparative orientation, which includes police in the United States, Australia, Canada, Great Britain, and Japan. At the same time, many analyses drop country designations altogether when to do so makes sense."--Contemporary Sociology "Fine scholarship, deep insights and thought-provoking suggestions for police reform."--Joseph D. McNamara, Police Chief, San Jose California (Ret.) and Research Fellow, Hoover Institute, Stanford University "This book challenges police officers, politicians and the public to confront fundamental questions about the future role of the police in advanced democratic societies. The strength of this challenge comes from the extensive data collected in a unique study of policing in five countries, and the scholarship of David Bayley's analysis. The police service in our society has a fundamental influence on the relationship between the state and the individual, and consequently, this is not simply a book to be read, it requires us to answer the questions raised."--A.J.P. Butler, Chief Constable, Gloucestershire Constabulary, United Kingdom "A 'benchmark' study and analysis of police operations and outcomes....a very useful blueprint for the future."--Choice "...this text is...the most poignant and realistic publication about policing I've read yet."--M.L. Dantzker, University of Texas Pan American
