Defund the Police: A Short History of Police Abolition and Divestment (Paperback)

£19.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

How accurate is the view in western liberal democracies of the police as guardians of public safety and enforcers of the law? Given police violence and the failure of many attempts at reform, attention has turned to other models of managing criminality, including defunding the police and instead funding alternatives to criminalization and incarceration.

This book is the first comprehensive overview of police divestment, using international examples and case studies to reimagine community safety beyond policing and imprisonment.

Showcasing a range of practical examples, this topical book will be relevant for academics, policy-makers, activists and all those interested in the Black Lives Matter movement, protest movements and the renewed interest in policing and abolitionism more generally.
