About the Author

Ben Bradford is a Departmental Lecturer in Criminology at the Centre for Criminology, University of Oxford and an Associate Research Fellow at St Hilda's College. His research revolves around public perceptions of, and reactions to, police and other criminal justice actors, with a particular emphasis on issues of trust, legitimacy, cooperation and compliance. The role social identity plays in all these processes is a particular current interest. Ben has worked on a number of cross-national and comparative research projects investigating such issues - most recently, an ESRC funded-project entitled Legal Norms and Crime Control: A Comparative, Cross-National Analysis. He also has an interest in aspects of operational policing, particularly `public-facing' police activity such as community patrol, public order policing and stop and search. Ben has authored or co-authored over 45 journal articles and book chapters, and with Jonathan Jackson, Katrin Hohl and Betsy Stanko a book: Just Authority: Trust in the Police in England and Wales. Beatrice Jauregui is assistant professor at the Centre for Criminology & Sociolegal Studies at the University of Toronto. Her research is concerned with how the lived experiences of persons working in police, military and other social organizations reflect and shape dynamics of authority, security and order. Jauregui's forthcoming book with the working title Provisional Authority: Police, Order and Security in India (University of Chicago Press) is an ethnography of everyday police practices in the world's largest democracy. She is also co-editor of Anthropology and Global Counterinsurgency and author of numerous chapter contributions and research articles published in American Ethnologist, Asian Policing, Conflict and Society, Law and Social Inquiry, Journal of South Asian Studies and Public Culture. Ian Loader is Professor of Criminology at the University of Oxford and Professorial Fellow of All Souls College, Oxford, England. Ian is the author of six books (most recently, Public Criminology? Routledge, 2010, with R. Sparks) and has published theoretical and empirical papers on policing, private security, public sensibilities towards crime, penal policy and culture, the politics of crime control, and the public roles of criminology. Ian is currently working on a project - termed `A Better Politics of Crime' - concerned with different dimensions of the relationship between crime control and democratic politics. The first strand of work on this project was brought together in Public Criminology? The next key stage will be a monograph with the working title of Crime Control and Political Ideologies which is in the early stages of preparation. The project also includes edited volumes on Democratic Theory and Mass Incarceration (with A. Dzur and R. Sparks, Oxford University Press, 2016) and Justice and Penal Reform (with B. Goldson, S. Farrall and A. Dockley, Routledge, 2016). Jonny Steinberg teaches African Studies at Oxford University and is a visiting professor at the Wits Institute for Social and Economic Research (Wiser) in Johannesburg. Among his books are The Number (2004), a social history of a South African prison, and Thin Blue (2008) an exploration of the relationship between uniformed police and civilians in the wake of apartheid. Steinberg was an inaugural winner of the Windham-Campbell Prizes for Literature awarded by Yale University and has twice won South Africa's highest literary prize, the Sunday Times Alan Paton Award. He is the author of numerous articles on South African policing published in the British Journal of Criminology, Theoretical Criminology, Policing and Society, African Affairs and Public Culture.


This most innovative Handbook addresses one central topic of our time, that of globalization, and links it to police studies. Probing the reconfiguration of police approaches in the context of external and internal security, delinquency, disorder, terrorism, democracies' shortcomings or states' tight relationship with global forces, such pioneering, well-researched and wide-ranging research provides stimulating and important insights on changes taking place in various parts of the world.

This collection of articles are intellectually engaged, informed and challenging. They encompass various disciplinary traditions. The diverse theories and high-quality empirical work here contribute to a better understanding of this transversal object called policing, incorporating a gamut of conceptions and legacies with a welcome global orientation. Such a Handbook will start an interdisciplinary and fruitful conversation, fostered by scholarly curiosity, healthy questioning and key knowledge.

-- Sophie Body-Gendrot
Policing is a world-wide practice and nearly everywhere contested. This path-breaking collection of essays by leading experts in the field identifies the need to develop a field of global policing studies that is both multi-disciplinary and sensitive to the interaction between global dynamics and local context. It will be essential reading for those interested in policing whether in the global South or the global North.
-- Catherine O'Regan
