The New Police in Nineteenth-Century England: Crime, Conflict and Control
Focusing on the evolution of a policed society in the nineteenth century England by examining the arguments surrounding police reforms, the development of police forces and police work, and the popular response to the 'Rozzers' as they were widely known, David taylor provides an up-to-date introduction which sets the development of modern policing in the wider social and economic context of an urbanising and industrialising society. The study of popular responses highlights the ambivalence that surrounded the new police and the continuing, often vicious, opposition to the police in many parts of urban and rural England which frustrated the hopes of police reformers and their supporters. It also throws new light on the hitherto neglected experiences and rewards enjoyed by the police themselves.
