    DescriptionPolice Use of Force: A Global Perspective is a fascinating, international exploration of police use of force, firearms, and less-than-lethal weapons in nations around the world. The book is comprised of three sections: the first focuses on the use of force generally, the second explores firearms and deadly force, and the final section considers less-than-lethal weapons, including pepper spray, TASERs, and other emerging technologies currently on the horizon. The essays gathered here will provide readers with an understanding of the vast differences in how police use force in various countries, as well as why police use force differently under different forms of government. Topics covered include use-of-force definitions, training procedures, policy issues, abuse of police authority, use of force during interrogations, and the use of firearms by armed and unarmed police forces. Finally, there is an essay focusing on how shooting and killing a suspect impacts an officer in the months and years that follow.

    Review quote
    "The editors have produced a scholarly, broad-based exploration of the highly charged and controversial subject of force as used in law enforcement. The contributors skillfully examine the impact that police shooting incidents have on law enforcement officers and the often-overwhelming post-event health issues. Extensive international perspectives and contributions provide multiple points of view that illuminate complex social, cultural, and political influences, some of which permit, if not actually encourage, police officers' excessive use of force. The findings also allow readers to consider the history of US police-related force issues in a more global context, especially by examining societal acceptance of the impact of force through the lens of social norms. Academics who study criminal justice, law, and the difficulties of policing in a democratic society will surely praise the thoroughness with which the authors scrutinize the topic. In addition, this research very successfully engages with related peripheral social science disciplines, specifically sociology, psychology, and political science. This book is an excellent addition for criminal justice collections. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division criminal justice, policing, or social science collections." - Choice
