Having long been a neglected issue, the policing of protest began to attract considerable attention in the 1990s, climaxing in the events in Seattle of 1999. These protests and the changing political climate since September 11, 2001 mean that a new cycle of protest is challenging the concept of law and order and civil liberties. This book examines how new policing styles are developing using case studies from North America and Europe. The volume brings together researchers from a number of disciplines - sociology, criminology, political science and mass communication - who focus on new forms of political protest, policing and public order.

Review:

'Seattle, Washington, Gothenburg, Copenhagen, Ottawa, Kananaskis, Genoa and Florence have all been played host to violent confrontations between police and anti-globalization protesters. This excellent collection of essays provides penetrating and fascinating analyses of those events and illuminating insights into why violence erupted. A 'must read' for academics, police professionals and protest organizers alike.' P.A.J. Waddington, University of Reading, UK 'As social movements and protests develop, a dark dance between protesters and police takes place. Della Porta and Reiter's volume gives deep insight into how these steps are sometimes choreographed and sometimes dramatically improvised - often leading to violence. This book represents the best social science thinking about protest policing. If that weren't enough, it also focuses on the compelling question of how local police confront transnational activists, illuminating cutting-edge questions of who leads the dance, who follows, and who chooses the tune.' Hank Johnston, Editor, Mobilization: An International Quarterly '...multidisciplinary approach, analytical focus and detailed descriptions make The Policing of Transnational Protest essential reading for those interested in new forms of political protest and public order policing.' Journal of Contingencies and Crisis Management '...an important contribution...raise[s] new questions about the evolution of crowd control strategies in Western democracies.' Acta Sociologica 'As an outline of the strategic and tactical issues involved in the policing of mass demonstrations, this is essential reading for scholars, practitioners and policy makers in the fields of public and criminal law.' Journal of International Criminal Justice
