Policing European Metropolises : The Politics of Security in City-regions (Hardcover)
About this item
City-regions and their political-economic interrelationships are increasingly important units of analysis in the sociology of contemporary policing because many of the problems that constitute policing can no longer be contained within national borders. To understand the processes of social organisation and change in contemporary policing consequently requires the study of social conflict and change within and between city-regions.
Policing European Metropolises focuses on problems of and for policing in city-regions in the European Union. Bringing together experts from across the continent, this book develops a sociology of urban policing in Europe and a unique methodology for comparing the experiences of different metropolises in the same country.
