This volume was reviewed by Dr Chris A. Williams
"The editors have assembled a team of authors who reflect the cutting edge of research on the ongoing issue of the tensions between autonomy, professionalism and accountability in police leadership. The coverage of the entire British Isles provides invaluable insights into the topic as a whole. The long chronological scope allows the past to be considered both in its own terms, and as a source of inspiration for those grappling with the problems of the present".
