    Memories of violence, suffering and atrocities in Cambodia are today being pulled in different directions.

At the centre of this stage is the Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC), a hybrid tribunal established... more...

  • Policing Contingenciesby Peter K. Manning

    University of Chicago Press 2010; US$ 52.00

    Despite constant calls for reform, policing in the United States and Britain has changed little over the past thirty years. In Policing Contingencies , Peter K.

    With the rise of surveillance technology in the last decade, police departments now have an array of sophisticated tools for tracking, monitoring, even predicting crime patterns.

  • Credit Code Redby Peter Brain; Ian Manning

    Scribe Publications Pty Ltd 2017; US$ 20.99

    Australia has been the lucky country for a long time. First it rode off the sheep’s back. Then it became a quarry for emerging economies. It deregulated its financial sector, abandoned manufacturing, rode an apparently endless urban-land boom, and has gone more than 25 years without a recession. But is Australia’s luck about to run out? Brain and... more...

    Georgetown University Press 1999; US$ 19.95

    The increasing reliance on private security services raises questions about the effects of privatization on the quality of public police forces, particularly in high-crime, low-income areas.
