Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is very good book, that develops a systematic critique of the police in capitalist society.

The author addresses such important questions as: what are the social causes of the police? why does social order require maintaining? in whose interests does the Police (as an institution of the State) operate?

A very good - but brief - historical overview is presented. The relationship between police, power and social order is examined.

I do feel, however, that the book is a little too short (at under 200 pages).
