Policing the Crisis : Mugging, the State and Law and Order, Paperback / softback Book

Policing the Crisis : Mugging, the State and Law and Order Paperback / softback


This special 35th anniversary edition contains the original, unchanged text that inspired a generation, alongside two new chapters that explore the book's continued significance for today's readers.

The Preface provides a brief retrospective account of the book's original structure, the rich ethnographic, intellectual and theoretical work that informed it, and the historical context in which it appeared.

In the new Afterword, each of the authors takes up a specific theme from the original book and interrogates it in the light of current crises, perspectives and contexts.
