Policing and War in Europe marks a new departure in Criminal Justice History. These seven chapter essays, together with the reviews of twelve major works in the area, establish the series as a major forum for exploring new areas of research in the criminal justice area in its historical, criminological, legal, and social aspects. Common themes and issues that emerge from the study of policing and warring from the perspectives of both the nation state and the local community are explored. Elaine Reynolds and Barry Godfrey examine the daily work of nightwatchmen, and private and public police in bringing order to the streets in times of peace and war. Mark Clapson and Clive Emsley examine the problem of the policeman's image in the culture of his community, and Richard Ireland illustrates how scientific advances in crime detection brought the stereotyping of criminals rather than their arrest and conviction. Michael Broers and David Smith reveal the dramatic impact that world war brought to the problem of policing occupied territory, while Simon Kitson demonstrates the dangers that can occur when the civilian police are used to invigilate racist policies of a totalitarian regime. An important resource for scholars, students, and other researchers involved with legal, political, and military history, criminal justice studies, sociology and criminology, and criminal law.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This collection highlights just how much there is to be said about the interactions between policing and war and, in the process, suggests how those links have the potential to alter out understanding of both. For that reason-among others-the book marks an impressive addition to the venerable crime history series. There is a wealth of innovative and detailed research in Policing and War in Europe."-Albion
