Policing and Society: A Global Approach covers a wide range of topics related to policing, with strong sociological analysis and an emphasis on global concepts and issues. This well-organized, reader-friendly book includes comprehensive coverage of important issues such as police corruption, use of excessive force, and police subculture. The book's unique international approach includes guest-written "International Perspectives" and various case studies, examples, and analogies illustrating policing here and in other countries. Students are able to compare and understand policing methods, challenges, and solutions across nations and cultures--and develop a broader outlook on law enforcement worldwide. Policing and Society: A Global Approach reflects the current state of policing and where the forefront of policing will be in the coming years. With this book, students not only develop an understanding of law enforcement on a local, regional, and national level, but also gain a deeper appreciation of issues on a larger scale, in the international community. The text's combined global and sociological perspective provides students with the knowledge and competence to better understand global law enforcement issues in a post 9/11-era.

"The comparative sections [are] invaluable to the students in today's climate. This is, by far, the strongest aspect of the text. ... [The global/international] perspective is IMPERATIVE [to my students]. ... Given the events of 9-11, students must realize that the world shrunk. "
"The [book] presents a variety of important subjects from both a sociological and criminal justice generalist perspective."
"[A] strength [of the book] is the sociological aspects within each chapter. As a sociologically trained criminologist I appreciate the social application of information for future law enforcement professionals."
