Resource description

There must be an election coming. The current debate in Britain about the politicisation of the police is analytically confused and historically amnesiac, with both Labour and the Conservatives looking like participants in an orgy of political cross-dressing. Professor Robert Reiner calls for a little historical perspective. This article originally appeared in the Spring 2010 issue of LSE Research.
