"The topics...are varied and interesting and reflect the editors' aim of examining challenges to the police in a changing environment. The articles offer focus on the environmental context, not just the issue."--James Golden, University of Arkansas at Little Rock

Format: Paperback
Contemporary Policing: Controversies, Challenges, and Solutions (An Anthology) edited by Quint C. Thurman, Jihong Zhao (Roxbury Publishing Company) A primary purpose of this anthology is to provide readers with an up-to-date perspective on contemporary policing and emergent is-sues. In part we focus on controversial topics, of which there is certainly no shortage; we also look at the components of policing that might be broken or antiquated, of which there are also more than a few, and which are in need of resolution or reform. Finally, in addition to controversies and challenges, we also seek to offer the reader some examples of solutions that appear promising, and surprisingly enough, we did find some of these.
In putting together this anthology we committed ourselves to looking at excellent scholarship that is also very recent-the oldest article in the bunch is from 1996, ten of the thirty featured articles were published in 2000 or later, and six articles are new. This anthology may indeed be the most contemporary collection of policing articles currently available to academicians, practitioners, and students.
This anthology brings together an outstanding collection of articles on contemporary policing, written by some of the leading experts in the field. The first four selections examine the major new developments with respect to re-thinking the role of the police in American society. Lawrence W. Sherman opens the collection with a discussion of the basic issue for the police in a democratic society: the trust and confidence of citizens in criminal justice institutions. Ronald V. Clarke discusses both problem-oriented policing and community policing. Eli B.

Way too many chapters not related to a first line supervisor. The book is also 700+ pages. It made me dizzy reading it.
