The SAGE Handbook of Global Policing

The SAGE Handbook of Global Policing

Edited by:

September 2016 | 654 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

The SAGE Handbook of Global Policing examines and critically retraces the field of policing studies by posing and exploring a series of fundamental questions to do with the concept and institutions of policing and their relation to social and political life in today's globalized world. The volume is structured in the following four parts:

  • Part One: Lenses
  • Part Two: Social and Political Order
  • Part Three: Legacies
  • Part Four: Problems and Problematics.

By bringing new lines of vision and new voices to the social analysis of policing, and by clearly demonstrating why policing matters, the Handbook will be an essential tool for anyone in the field.
