This analysis of police forces in twelve countries uses a "Continuum of Democracy" scale to assess the stages of democratization of their operations and responses, and five basic themes to rank and evaluate where each country falls on the continuum: their history of having a democratic form of government; the level of corruption within governmental organizations and the oversight mechanisms; the scope of and response to civil disobedience; the organizational structures of police departments; and the operational responses to terrorism and organized crime. This is an ideal text for undergraduate and graduate courses in comparative criminal justice, police studies, policing and society, and terrorism in departments of criminal justice, criminology, sociology, and government. Ibrahim Cerrah teaches and does research in both Turkey, where he was with the national police force, and at John Jay.

A distinguished roster of authors, representing many years of knowledge and practice in the field, draw on the latest research and methods to delineate, describe, and analyze all areas of law enforcement. This encyclopedia provides a comprehensive, critical, and descriptive examination of all facets of law enforcement on the state and local, federal and national, and international stages. The work is a unique reference source that provides readers with informed discussions on the practice and theory of policing in an historical and contemporary framework. The volumes treat subjects that are particular to the area of state and local, federal and national, and international policing. Many of the themes and issues of policing cut across disciplinary borders, however, and several entries provide comparative information that places the subject in context. Larry Sullivan is a professor of criminal justice at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and The Graduate Center.
