A History of Policing in England and Wales from 1974: The Turbulent Years offers a detailed and descriptive chronology of the period, exploring the key themes of order and social stability, the professionalization of the police service, centralization, the dynamics of police community relations, and the 'reform' programmes of the Thatcher, Major and Blair administrations, in particular charting the failure of the Charles Clarke drive for amalgamations in 2005/6.

Written by a chief constable involved in policing throughout much of the period, the book vividly describes the great events of the time, including the threat and ultimate defeat of IRA terrorism; the urban riots of the 1980s; major crime investigations - such as the 'Yorkshire Ripper', the West Case, and the Soham murders - and their lasting impact; the controversial policing of the 1984 Miners' Strike; and the return of terrorism to the British mainland in 2005.

About the Author:


Dr Timothy Brain is Chief Constable of Gloucestershire Police and has been since 2001. He is chair of ACPO's Finance Business Area and is heavily involved with the financial aspects of force re-structuring. He is also a historian with a PhD in History and is an Honorary Research Fellow at London South Bank University. He has written both historical publications as well as a large number of policing articles and reviews.

Review:

Brain's subtle and considered professional overview of the police and its practices over 35 years directly confronts some of the most challenging scenes of the rule of law in a modern democracy and the relationship of the police with politicians, the media and the public. * The Times The Review May 2010 * facinating reading, offering a perspective on contemporary social history that is almost unique, the book is a boon to researchers in this field as well as general readers. * Phillip Taylor MBE, Richmond Green Chambers *
