Compiled and edited by Roger Hopkins Burke (Senior Lecturer in Criminology, Nottingham Trent University), Hard Cop, Soft Cop: Dilemmas And Debates In Contemporary Policing is an anthology of essays by learned authors discussing policework in contemporary society. From reviews of contemporary methodologies for reducing crime, to issues of democracy and human rights, as balanced against community rights, to thorny issues of over-policing and under-policing and much more, Hard Cop, Soft Cop is a gritty, serious discussion of the conflicting need for security versus the need for civil and human rights. Examples cited range worldwide, including New York City, Germany, British Asian communities, and more, but the central theme of Hard Cop, Soft Cop is nothing less than universally human. Highly recommended.
