Hardback. An inside view of the British police in their daily work, but an inside view with a difference. While there have been memoirs by top-ranking officers, this is a rare account by someone who never rose above the rank of Police Constable. The author vividly describes the life of the ordinary copper: often bored, sometimes frightened, usually unpopular, always vulnerable. Issues like the fragile relationship between police and public, the constant criticism levelled at police methods, and the handling of incidents like the 1984-85 Miners' Strike and the News International dispute, also come under scrutiny. The author's account makes fascinating reading but it is also a harsh reminder that the policeman's lot is an increasingly hazardous one. With Suggest Further Reading. 222pp. 8vo. h/back. F. in Vg+ dw.
