Editorial Reviews


"Police and the Liberal State adds to the growing new scholarship on police. With its excellent analysis, this significant and original contribution will have a major impact on both law and society." —Pat O'Malley, University of Sydney

"This volume provides compelling evidence of both the continued vitality of police power and its complex permutations during different historical periods in the development of American liberalism. Those seeking to understand the problems of governing contemporary American society and in seeking new approaches to classic problems like poverty and crime control will want to read this pathbreaking, cross-disciplinary study." —Jonathan Simon, University of California, Berkeley
