Description - Issues in Transnational Policing by James Sheptycki

Globalisation, the wired planet, the global village, these are a few of the terms associated with the social and political changes that are said to describe the world at the beginning of the new millennium. One of the most important institutions of the social ordering has been that of policing, but very little has been written on how the practices of social control are affected by the processes of transnationalisation. This book brings together contributions by experts on policing that focus on some of the newly emergent policing issues connected with these changes: *the global private security industry *cross national networking between police *the establishment of an international criminal court *money laundering *policing cyberspace *the drug war Issues in Transnational Policing crosses the boundaries between criminology, international relations and international law to provide a thought-provoking picture of the complex issues surrounding the politics of policing in the future.
