MEDIA REVIEWS

'David J. Francis frames Policing in Africa within contemporary broad police sector reform in transition societies in Africa, with comparative contributions from the Balkans and Latin America. This is by far one of the most comprehensive studies of policing in Africa during what could be termed 'post-neoliberal' euphoria and its significant impacts on police organization and performance and police-community relations. Francis and his colleagues must be congratulated for putting Africa at the cutting edge of contemporary police studies. A must read for graduate and post-graduate students, researchers and scholars in the fields of sociology, politics, international relations, social movements, and legal pluralism. This book has food for thought, and is accessible and hugely relevant for policy makers and professionals dealing with police and security sector reforms, peace-keeping and conflict management professionals, and the general public.' M.A. Mohamed Salih, chair, Politics of Development, and deputy rector for research at the International Institute of Social Studies, Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands
