Strategic Responses to Crime: Thinking Locally, Acting Globally edited by Melchor de Guzman is a wide-ranging volume that combines the perspectives of both scholars and police executives from around the globe, including chapters focused on both emerging and established democratic societies. The volume covers important global innovations in community policing, emerging transnational issues, such as drug trafficking and terrorism, and the use of information in police agencies, among other issues of importance to anyone interested in a global perspective on policing.
