Samenvatting

This book documents a systematic investigation into various aspects of policing in the People's Republic of China, including its scholarship, idea, origin, history, education, culture, reform, and theory. It approaches the study of Chinese policing from an indigenous perspective, informed by local empirical data. In proposing an innovative theory of community policing entitled Police Power as a Social Resource Theory , the book seeks to look at crime as a personal problem, and police as a social resource, from the perspective of the people and not the state.

Recensie(s)

Kam C. Wong's book integrates the comparative knowledge of policing with a detailed and immensely erudite analysis of the police in China, in the past and now. Drawing on his (...) extensive and intimate knowledge of Chinese history, culture, philosophy, ideology, and recent economic, political and legal changes, he presents a masterful synthesis of the forces that have shaped the policing systems of China over time. His main argument is that existing descriptions of the Chinese police severely underestimate the complexity and variety of policing that is done in China, [and that Chinese] (...) policing systems (...) can only be understood and correctly interpreted through the lens of Chinese culture and ideology. (Otwin Marenin, Department of Political Science and Criminal Justice, Washington State University) This detailed study of the history and evolution of policing in China lays the basis for comparative research, sheds light on the challenges and prospects of maintaining law and order in such a huge and rapidly developing country as China, and provides policy-makers important insights for a much needed, more effective, reform agenda. (Randall Peerenboom, Professor of Law, La Trobe University; Associate Fellow, Oxford University Centre for Socio-Legal Studies) A unique window on the cultural and political foundations of contemporary Chinese policing [and] an important contribution to comparative criminology. (Peter Grabosky, Australian National University) This book provides an important contribution to our understanding of historical and contemporary Chinese policing. Of particular interest is the author's theory of Police Power as a Social Resource' which, drawing upon Chinese theory and practice, challenges us to think beyond the conventional Anglo-American' (police-led) models of community policing which have dominated so much contemporary debate.
