Robert Reiner is Professor of Criminology in the Law Department at the London School of Economics and Political Science. He is the author or editor of several successful texts on criminology and the police, including The Oxford Handbook of Criminology (2/e 1997).
`"The publication of the third edition marks an important rearticulation of the constabulary ethic and the doctrine of policing..the new encyclopaedists who follow in Reiner's wake will struggle to define the politics of policing for their time"' James Sheptycki, Durham University in Policing and Society
`"This is a first class academic book that can be as engrossing as a novel, even for a non-expert on the subject. It will be of use to anyone who comes into contact with the police regularly and aid the understanding of anyone who has an opinion on any aspect of the police or policing."' The Criminal Lawyer
