This groundbreaking new text by Michael Rowe is the first genuinely introductory, comprehensive textbook on policing. It incorporates all the key areas of a policing course, from the history of the police and the legal framework, to current debates around issues such as diversity, surveillance and the nature of police occupational culture. The book highlights the way in which theory applies to practice at every step. "Introduction to Policing" offers: accessible coverage of all essential topics; an insightful approach, which explores and unpicks contemporary issues in a truly readable and lucid manner; excellent learning features throughout, to challenge and stimulate students; including boxed examples, self-check questions and answers, further reading and a full glossary; and a student-friendly writing style that encourages students to engage with debates and to develop critical thinking skills.With its breadth and depth of coverage, extensive learning features and engaging writing style, students of criminology and criminal justice will find "Introduction to Policing" an indispensable introduction to key themes in modern-day policing. 'The pedagogical features offer good guidance and make the text accessible and relevant, something that many other policing texts fail to do' - Matthew Millings, School of Law, Liverpool John Moores University. 'A clear, concise, user-friendly introduction to policing' - Professor Robert Reiner, London School of Economics. 'An invaluable resource for students...this comprehensive and readable work provides a step-by-step guide to the key issues and debates concerning policing today' - Professor Michael King, Birmingham City University.
