Editorial Reviews

Review

“The great wave of democratization in Latin America has been accompanied by a concomitant wave of crime, much of it violent. Increasingly, Latin American citizens are demanding ‘strong-man’ rule, in the vain belief that this will help make them safe. This excellent and comprehensive volume, edited and written by leading researchers in the field, examines the crime problem, the often ineffectual attempts to control it via police reform, and the threats to democracy that its pervasiveness has generated.”
—Mitchell A. Seligson, Vanderbilt University


“This book provides the in-depth critiques, comparative framework, and political analysis long needed in the study of police reform. Covering a broad range of countries on issues from international crime to community policing, and from the perspectives of different disciplines, this book is essential reading for academics and practitioners in the area of criminal justice.”
—Mark Ungar, Brooklyn College, The City University of New York
