About this book

This analysis explores law-and-order policing as a central point of capitalist state power, arguing that crime-fighting is not the principle aim of contemporary law and order policing—rather, the aim is the production of a new, neoliberal capitalist order based on the restructuring of social relations. Two case studies provide a close-up look at the impact of such policing as a means of social control.
