Synopsis

This book documents a systematic investigation into various aspects of policing in the People's Republic of China, including its scholarship, idea, origin, history, education, culture, reform, and theory. It approaches the study of Chinese policing from an indigenous perspective, informed by local empirical data. In proposing an innovative theory of community policing entitled "Police Power as a Social Resource Theory", the book seeks to look at crime as a personal problem, and police as a social resource, from the perspective of the people and not the state.
