A Short History of Police and Policing

Clive Emsley

  • A broad geographical and chronological examination of the concept and development of policing from ancient times to the present day
  • Demonstrates that policing was never the exclusive dominion of the police, and that the institution of the police, as we know it today, is a relatively recent creation
  • Shows how the institution of 'the police' came to be virtually universal in our modern world
