Considering this book is a textbook for the study of policing, it seems disappointing that Rowe only decided to give a brief overview of the various areas of police work, and a brief (to the point of being meaningless) history of policing.

If your lecturer or course convenor has recommended this book, ignore them. It will not get you through your exams, which is something one could at least partially expect for the price attached.

I used this book for my very first assignment ever in university. The book is an easy read and very helpful for courses such as criminology.
