    Clive Emsley traces the development of Britain's forces of law and order from the earliest watchmen and constables of the pre-modern period to the police service of today. In his 'collective biography of the ordinary police officer', Emsley examines the challenges the police have faced - including industrial unrest, the motor car and ethnic diversification - and describes milestones in their history from the establishment of the Bow Street Runners in the 1750s to the 1999 Macpherson Report into the death of Stephen Lawrence.
