Sanker Sen (Author)
Synopsis The author very critically and analytically examines the various aspects of the policing in Indian context. The book also briefly, but lucidly deals with the police force and policing in United States, Britain, Australia and Latin America. Brutality and torture of accused by the police is very evidently depicted. The reality and illusion about the crime control is very evidently partitioned. The author also managed to detect the various obstacles being faced by the police force in the area of free investigation and how their confidence and morale are eroded. The book also maps out the ways for police force to tackle and combat the terrorists and terrorism in very effective manner. The need of the proper training for the police force is also stressed very rightly. The author also thinks in line with those argue that the police force should be given autonomy to enhance accountability to public and concerned authority. The unnecessary adversary between press and police force is corroborated by the author very convincingly.
