This book by Audrey Farrell is a decade old now but is a must read for anyone interested in how the modern police force has developed.If there is a revised edition, obtain it. Since Farrell produced this excellent piece of work things have moved on but it is still relevant. I have no idea how I missed the publication in the mid 1990s.

This book is political dynamite. The history of the police in the UK is difficult to excavate, given the secrecy of the British state. But Farrell's book exposes the role of the police in maintaining the rule of elites.

Audrey Farrell's book on the police is now two decades old, but it's analysis isn't remotely dated. She lays out the practice, function and politics of the police with such astonishing rigour that she could have been writing yesterday. The chapters on the history of the modern police force, especially the one on policing sport, are extraordinarily illuminating. And for all its tenacity, it ends on a wonderfully utopian note.
