CHOICE Review

Policing is an important topic in criminal justice research, discussion, and debate. In this edited collection's 12 chapters, scholars from across the globe explore the institution of policing. The authors discuss policing in South Africa, India, Taiwan, Mozambique, Turkey, Chile, Bolivia, Thailand, Portugal, France, and the US. As the field of criminology has matured, the use of quantitative methods to analyze social phenomena has become widespread. This book breaks from the trend by taking an ethnographic approach to examining police and policing. The contributing authors specifically examine topics such as discretion, violence, and training. Each chapter contains a full bibliography and a list of notes for further details on claims and statements made throughout the text. This informative, well-written book will be a valued addition to university library collections seeking to support anthropology, sociology, or criminology and criminal justice programs. It could serve as a resource for research or as assigned reading for graduate seminars concerning policing or qualitative research methods in criminology and criminal justice. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. --Daniel Ryan Kavish, Lander University
