Summary

Globalising British Policing demonstrates how the policing system in place in Britain today has emerged from an historical overlap of two broad policing models: a civil (English) and a semi-military (colonial) tradition. Until relatively recently colonial policing received considerably less scholarly attention than the policing of mainland Britain. This volume comprises four sections: section I considers works on British colonial policing up until the Second World War; section II moves to post-war colonial policing through the era of decolonisation; section III looks more closely at the policing of Northern Ireland, and, section IV shows how the meshing of these policing systems are currently contributing to the globalisation of British policing today.
