A multi-disciplinary team of leading scholars bring together case studies from developed countries to examine the performance of police and policing in rural areas. The book argues that rurality, policing and criminality are socially constructed and policing therefore rests on the ways in which the police, public and other agencies regulate themselves and each other according to the dominant ideals of society.
