Reviews

'This is a fascinating and important collection. Police forces can easily be torn between their role as protector of the state and protector of the citizen - and, perhaps, this was never more the case than in Europe during the inter-war period. The essays here draw attention to the complexities within police institutions, the rivalries between such institutions, and their relationships with states and citizens. Geographically, the range is impressive, with refreshing explorations of central as well as western Europe. The collection will be of value far beyond historians of crime, public order and policing and is of direct relevance to anyone interested broadly in the consolidation and maintenance of state authority.' - Professor Clive Emsley, Director of the European Centre for the Study of Policing, The Open University, UK

'An invaluable book for the serious student of international policing.' - Police History Society
