   schema:reviewBody ""In the first half of the nineteenth century France was characterized by extraordinary regional and linguistic diversity, but the state increasingly became a central force in the lives of its citizens. One way that it did so, as John Merriman details in this work, was through its police force, which developed into a modern profession during this period. He describes the careers of policemen, how they were hired, the difficulties they faced, and the successes they enjoyed. Through the lives of these men, he shows how the political issues of the day, as well as incompetence and imprudence, could bring a sudden, inglorious end to their work in the police. His study underscores how the police helped the state affirm its primacy, winning the allegiance, or at least the obedience, of the French people."--BOOK JACKET." ;
