Abstract:

This book, the second volume of a series entitled "The Uncertainty Series," contains articles exploring the relationships of policing and security and how these issues relate to democracy both in theory and practice in the United States and around the world. The articles are grouped under broad issues, and the first concerns the theoretical relationship between police and democracy as well as community policing as the primary form of democratic policing. Some topics include: police consent, problems in protecting civil and human rights, conflicts between community and government, changes within police governing power in terms of security and justice, and facing the new information age. The next section centers on issues of police and policing in places with a stable democratic system, with articles on such countries as Australia, Finland, and Japan. The following section concentrates on issues regarding policing in societies undergoing transition from repressive regimes to more liberal systems like Russia and China. The last section deals with police confronting specific problems growing out of new technical or social developments while having to cope with existing forces in such places as Brazil and Africa. Each article includes references, glossary, resources, and tables.
