This analysis of policing throughout the modern world demonstrates how many of the contentious issues surrounding the police in recent years - from paramilitarism to community policing - have their origins in the fundamentals of the police role. The author argues that this results from a fundamental tension within this role. In liberal democratic societies, police are custodians of the state's monopoly of legitimate force, yet they also wield authority over citizens who have their own set of rights.

Review:

'Policing Citizens is essential reading for students and researchers who want a comprehensive and sophisticated introduction to contemporary policing. Packed with ideas, information, and argument from an author with wide-ranging research and professional experience, it is an outstanding contribution to the literature. An excellent book in every way.' - Professor David Dixon, University of New South Wales

'Policing Citizens is a tour de force review of research on policing, primarily in Britain and North America. The range of coverage of research studies constitutes a state of the art overview. The critical analysis of this material is sharp and insightful, systematically organized around a core theoretical argument, namely that policing is structured by cultural notions of who is included in 'citizenship' at particular times and places. The book is of considerable value to other researchers and teachers on policing because of its encyclopaedic scholarship. It consolidates Professor Waddington's position in the elite of policing scholars and analysts. - Professor Robert Reiner, London School of Economics

'This book manages to be accessible to students without over-simplifying many of the problems faced by police and presented by policing. Waddington does not shy away from difficult issues, and examples drawn from his own observation and research make the subject 'live'. A very good read. - Professor Andrew Sanders, University of Manchester
