Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: The Metropolitan Police has been well studied, but the origins of rural policing have been somewhat neglected. This book examines the parish constabulary before its marginalization; how, when and why county policing was transformed; the pressures favoring these changes; the forces of resistance; the arguments and actions of reformers and governments; gentry-inspired experiments with paid police; the political context of the important legislation; the implantation of the new police; and the relationship of police reform to wider political debates over the modernization of local government. It provides insights into issues which still command attention: the proper role of the police, their effect on civil liberties and the maintenance of order.
